Monthly report on current maintenance and construction:
Mr. Aukamp reported the plows and salt spreaders have finally been
removed from the trucks. Crews are getting equipment ready for
summer sealcoat program. Crews are still spending time inspecting
the road signs and making repairs as needed. Crews patched potholes
and repaired road edges this month. A culvert was replaced near
Burton View. Due to deteriorated condition of the existing metal
pipe, a concrete pipe was installed. The crew is continuing to
repair culverts south of Middletown. Many of these culverts are
concrete pipes that are at least 50 years old. Most of the repairs
involve re-setting the end sections and grading the areas at the
Constructions reports: No construction projects are active at
Engineering Report: Mr. Aukamp reported he has spent several
days for the past 4 years evaluating culvers that cross under the
County Highways. Each year he inspects the culverts under 30-35
miles of roadway. This results in a 5-year rotation for culvert
inspection. We have 344 small culverts that were never inspected or
inventoried until 4 years ago.
