Project Limits:

This tax ditch is located on US9 approximately 4 miles South-West of Georgetown, near Sussex Technical High School.

Project Need:

The pipe crossing under the road is rapidly deteriorating due to rust and must be replaced.

Project Overview:

This project involves the replacement of a corrugated metal pipe with a corrugated polyethylene pipe. The approach roadways will be reconstructed as needed and riprap will be placed in the stream for scour protection. The work will be performed under a full road closure with a detour. Additional corrugated plastic pipes will be used to transport storm water from roadside ditches to the tax ditch.
