5th Street Culvert Replacement Project Begins Soon

Soon, you will be seeing work being done on South 5th Street just pass the intersection with Patterson Drive. The work is to replace the culvert running under 5th Street to better handle the storm water running in Volunteer Creek.

We have experienced water topping over 5th Street during short, extremely heavy rain storms. This work will improve the flow by making a larger capacity culvert to handle a larger amount and slowing down the current with the larger area. The project will also improve the overall creek bed as well.

The project should take 4-6 weeks to complete. The detour for 5th Street will be 165th Place which is the county road that runs along Summerset Trail. For more information, please call Carlisle City Hall at 989-3224.
