Project Location

Structure #23060 is located on Prairie Baptist Rd. between 191st St. and 206th St.

Reason for Project

Deterioration has occurred at various locations along the arch ring. Currently, the geometry of the structure is one-lane and has sight distance issues due to a rise on both sides of the structure.

Project Scope

The project widened the roadway and structure to two 12 foot lanes and a minimum 4-foot shoulder. The roadway was also elevated to eliminate any sight distance issues. The new structure is now able to accommodate a Q100 flood event with an additional two feet of free board for extreme flood events.
