E. Hemmi Road Flood Mitigation

E. Hemmi Road Detour

Summary

This project will raise about 1,100 feet of E. Hemmi Road that is prone to flooding and replace a five-foot diameter culvert at Ten-Mile Creek with a 16.75-foot span aluminum plate culvert to allow water to flow more easily beneath the road. 

Traffic Impacts

E. Hemmi Road will be closed at the project location starting in July 2021 for about four months. A signed detour will be in place during the closure on Ten Mile Road, Noon Road, and Hannegan Road. 

Project Benefits

  • Reduces the risk of flooding on E. Hemmi Road.
