New inspection program aids culvert work

The replacement work on culverts under sections of Highway 42 in Kewaunee County and Jacksonport in Door County are being made possible through a new Wisconsin Department of Transportation inspection program.  The culvert being replaced in Kewaunee County was not due for reconstruction for a few more years.  Chris Blazek, the DOT's Northeast Region Maintenance Supervisor, says culvert inspections are conducted every four years.  He says the new inspection system helps find culverts that have deteriorated more rapidly than expected.



The electronic inspection reporting system also allows the DOT to photograph culvert and bridge conditions and ingest them into department computer systems immediately.
