The proposed work at four culverts that are undergoing rehabilitation ranges from concrete repair, culvert lining and scour protection. Two culverts will have full replacements which will include the relocation of utility poles and land acquisition, tree cutting and pedestrian diversion. One of the culvert replacements, Route 8 over Unnamed Creek is within the National Registered Eligible Village of Speculator Historic District. The culvert replacement at Route 30 over Griffin Brook in the Town of Indian Lake will incorporate the restoration of approximately 0.2 acre of wetlands adjacent to the culvert and the construction of formal parking area for trail access. The project is located in various Towns in Hamilton County, New York.
