Statement of Floodplain Findings_PID 95500.pdfVan Wert County-State Route 81-Mile Marker 13.65 (PID: 95500)  Statement of Floodplain Findings_PID 95500
This project proposes drainage improvements along State Route (SR) 81 in Van Wert County near mile marker 13.65. A man-made ditch along the north side of SR 81 will be widened and re-graded to increase the efficiency of drainage. A strip take of right-of-way along the north side of SR 81 is anticipated to accommodate the wider ditch. Deteriorating twin culverts carrying water under SR 81 will be replaced. Drainage tile and/or an open-cut ditch will be installed along the south side of SR 81 to help drain water towards the aforementioned twin culverts. A strip take of right-of-way along the south side of SR 81 is anticipated to accommodate the drainage tile and/or open-cut ditch. Culverts carrying water under Brown Road will be upgraded to accommodate the drainage improvements. In addition, a new culvert is proposed near a residence in the center of the project study area in order to facilitate drainage under SR 81.

Construction is expected to occur in the summer of 2018.
