Once the flood waters have reduced, cleaning can begin. Considering the amount of water, compared to previous events , this clean up and repair will be lengthy.
First, the flood mud will be removed with a small fleet of graders with brushes working simultaneously. Once the mud is removed, the road will be inspected for pavement damage, repaired and resealed. Because the flood has been significantly bigger and water has stayed longer than ever before, we anticipate damage to culverts as well.
Public safety is paramount, and we need to ensure the road is in a safe condition before opening to traffic.
