On Monday, workers from the Warren-based Angelo Iafrate Construction Company began installing a reinforced concrete pipe with an 84-inch diameter on Wood Trail.
The new pipe will replace the corrugated metal culvert that failed in late February, leading to the collapse of a section of Wood Trail and the formation of a massive sinkhole.
The new culvert will do the same job as the old one – allow the waters of Paint Creek to flow beneath the subdivision road.
Until the $360,000 project is completed, Wood Trail between Watersmeet Dr. and Chesnut Ct. will remain closed to through-traffic as it has been since the sinkhole was discovered and reported on Feb. 24.
The plan is to reopen Wood Trail by Friday, June 22.
