Shawcroft Road Reopens

Shawcroft Road has reopened and was celebrated with a ribbon cutting on Aug. 23. The Shawcroft Road culvert was washed out during Hurricane Matthew in 2016. A temporary culvert was constructed so that Shawcroft Road could be opened and access provided to the community until a permanent solution could be designed and constructed. Construction of the permanent culvert began on July 8, 2019. The culvert was designed by Hazen and construction was performed by Wells Brothers Construction. Project management services were provided by Freese and Nichols. The cost was approximately $457,000. For more information regarding this project, please visit us on the web at
