This project will relocate a drainage ditch from where it is currently located in the middle of a field, to the proposed location north along State Route 162. The current ditch is approximately 1220 linear feet and meanders through the field in a horseshoe shape which reduce the landowner's ability to plant and harvest the entire field. The new ditch alignment will be straight. approximately 600 linear feet, and will match up with existing adjacent drainage ditches that have been straightened in the past. The new straightened drainage will be excavated, contoured and tied in with the existing adjacent drainage system before the meandering drainage is filled in.
