Gosling Czubak provided design and construction engineering services for this BIA funded road improvement project. The project included crushing and shaping the existing roadway and installing storm sewer to eliminate the direct discharge in to Belanger’s Creek. In addition, twin culverts for Belanger’s Creek were replaced with a single 19’x12’ structural plate arch culvert that was designed by NRCS and coordinated into the project. 

The culvert replacement necessitated the relocation of the existing sanitary sewer and water mains. As these utilities did not have alternate supplies, they needed to be kept in service throughout the project. This was accomplished by directionally drilling replacement lines below the creek and live tapping the existing lines for uninterrupted service. Completed in 2015.
