Lockard Road, from Gerard Road to Highway 81, was reopened today following completion of the construction of a new reinforced concrete box (RCB) drainage structure to replace an existing deteriorated drainage structure. The structure is located on Lockard Road, 50 feet east of Gerard Road.
Saline County opened bids on the 2016 Reinforced Concrete Box (RCB) Package on June 30, 2016. This project consists of the replacement of nine existing drainage structures with new reinforced concrete box culverts. The low bidder was Reece Construction Company, Inc. of Scandia, Kansas. They were awarded a contract for $614,614.16. The project is funded from the 2-mil fund for bridge and culvert replacement.
This particular box culvert is eighth of the nine to be replaced.
