All the hammering of ledge is done and that large machine is now off the premises. The project is looking at substantial completion by the second week in May, with the actual culvert and road work done at some point before that. Final landscaping and area restoration will be the activity the last couple weeks.         
Brandon Overflow Culvert Project

Project Update - Brandon Overflow
Culvert & pictures
Date: 5/2/17
The prelude to our two year Segment Six project- updates

  After the flooding damage caused by Hurricane Irene, FEMA provided monies for the construction of a very large overflow culvert, to be installed under Route 7 starting at Rowe's Barber Shop and ending beyond Green Park by the lower falls. The intent is for any high water events to be minimized by the redirecting of millions of gallons of water away from the choke point that goes under the businesses and town offices. This should significantly reduce the damage of any high water from storms and spring flooding.
With cooperation from the Town, Markowski Excavating and Dubois & King, we hope to provide  updates on work performed and a look ahead at work for the upcoming weeks.
Culvert Project Chart 2 week look ahead.
  (There may be unforeseen changes to this timeline due to various circumstances)

You can also find updates and information on the Town's website-  Townofbrandon.com

With a new traffic pattern through the heart of Center Street and many businesses unaware of the particulars of the new project, a meeting was put together by the Chamber and the town to give everyone a chance to voice concerns, ideas and suggestions. Over 35 folks attended and discussion was energetic and productive. The town and Markowskis have been very responsive to our concerns and many solutions and ideas were discussed and implemented.
Watch for more updates in the future.

A little bonus for you- here's a general drawing, nicely done by

Robert Black, of the culvert project area. It shows the culvert, the

new bridge project on the Bob Read properties, and the surrounding

changes due with the upcoming segment 6 improvements.
