Structure #23060 - Prairie Baptist Rd. Over Gwinn Ditch
10/26/16: Construction is complete.
Structure #23060 is located on Prairie Baptist Rd. between 191st St. and 206th St.
Reason for Project
Deterioration had occurred at various locations along the arch ring. The geometry of the structure consisted of one-lane and had sight distance issues due to a rise on both sides of the structure.
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.
