White Oak Ditch Improvement Project Update

Posted: May 13, 2024, 4:25 PM

The White Oak Ditch Improvement Project, which began in March, is making steady progress. We are pleased to announce that one side of the project is complete, while the other is currently under construction.

As part of the project's requirements, the contractor has scheduled to close Dogwood South Lane on Tuesday, May 28th. This closure will last an estimated 45 calendar days, during which the deteriorating metal culverts under the road will be replaced with more resilient concrete ones.

District 8 Police Juror Doug Rimmer says that the completion of the project will bring a lasting solution to the chronic drainage problem faced by residents in the South Dogwood area. He adds, “This project is a significant step towards improving drainage, reducing erosion, standing water, and the associated mosquito breeding issues.”

During the road closure, residents living on the east side of White Oak Ditch are advised to use Tall Pines Road or Dogwood Trail, accessible via Bellevue Road, as alternative routes to reach their homes. "The contractor in charge of the project will be putting up signs for the detour route throughout the neighborhood.
