Construction will begin mid-August to repair the failed culvert immediately downhill from Lower Kearns Road. design is currently in development. Construction will be broken into two phases to minimize traffic impacts on the community.
In late June 2023, the culvert below Brush Creek Road failed in the vicinity of lower Kearns Rd. This failure produced a large sinkhole in the area. The Town implemented an emergency stabilization of the sinkhole to ensure public safety and decrease future damage to the surrounding infrastructure.
This reconstruction project will provide a permanent replacement of the culvert and roadway in the affected area. The design is currently in development. Construction will be broken into two phases to minimize traffic impacts on the community.
The first construction phase of the project will start in mid-August and go into mid-November. Phase 1 of construction will include the replacement of the failed section of the culvert (northern portion) and roadway reconstruction. Two-way traffic on Brush Creek Road will remain with a re-alignment. The exact configuration of lower Kearns Road is still to be determined, but the traffic patterns will be affected on lower Kearns Road as well.
The schedule for Phase 2 of construction is still to be determined but will include the replacement of the southern section of the culvert below Brush Creek Road. Additional information will be shared as it becomes available.
