Thomas Drake Ct Project

Town of Kernersville
Program Area:
Flood Mitigation and Recovery Program
County of Applicant:

The Town of Kernersville discovered a sizable hole and longitudinal fractures during inspection of the culvert crossing on Thomas Drake Court. Failure of the culvert would lead to the development of a sinkhole, loss of the road, area flooding and potential property damage for residents. Loss of the road would also prevent access for emergency services. An existing sewer line could also be undermined causing failure resulting in loss of services as well as wastewater entering the channel. Golden LEAF flood mitigation grant funds will be used to replace the existing damaged culvert. The project will include removal of the failing corrugated metal pipe and replace it with reinforced concrete pipe. The culvert will be extended upstream of the crossing. The extension will provide protection to the adjacent sewer line. Downstream of the culvert crossing, two driveway culvert crossings will be abandoned in place and the new reinforced concrete pipe installed with tie-in to the proposed headwall. Stream realignment and stabilization grading both upstream and downstream will better direct flow and prevent further erosion. Households located in the immediate project area in the section of Thomas Drake Court from the culvert crossing northward to the cul-de-sac will directly benefit from this project.
