SP 121

Replacement of the Indian Creek Crossing on Leclerc Rd South

Sp 121 is planned to replace a 72″ concrete culvert with a new bridge structure.  Located 6.25 miles northwest of Newport along Leclerc Road South, Indian Creek is one of two major creek crossings along this cooridor.  With a high traffic volume and a sharp horizontal curve, the culvert was a good candidate for replacement.  The existing culvert formed a restriction in the creek, due to being undersized by current standards.  The new 58′ bridge will open the chanel up to natural width and raise the elevation of the roadway to be above the 100 year flood event.  This project will also contain a “Wildlife Passage Cooridor” along the newly designed stream bank.
