1. 62nd ST SE - road washout

Water is not flowing through the culvert because it is blocked with silt. A quote was provided by the county for $15,000 but couldn't get to it for 3 years. Jay got a quote for a contractor for $16,000 to clean the culvert or $24,500 if the culvert gets replaced at the same time, which was the suggested route as the culvert is undersized.
