Document Description
This project consists of removing a driveway entrance off of Pleasant Valley Road to the school grounds and installing a new driveway 220 feet west of the current driveway. The project will improve the primary student drop-off loop and parking lot, hard-court play area, relocate the vehicular site entrance, and prepare the site for a new multipurpose building. The uppermost reach of Mills Creek has been realigned in the past to flow next to the parallel with Pleasant Valley Road. The existing driveway crosses Mills Creek with an approximately 50-feet long, 12-inch diameter concrete culvert with concrete headwalls. The project intends to remove the existing driveway, including concrete culvert and headwalls, and contour the earth banks where the culvert has been removed to align with the existing bank on either side. The project will require a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan that will include erosion control measures at the site of the removed culvert. A replacement driveway will be constructed approximately 220 foot west of the existing driveway on Pleasant Valley Road. The replacement driveway will cross Mills Creek with an approximately 50 foot long, 18 inch diameter culvert. Approximately 222 linear feet of Mills Creek will be reshaped. The 222 feet includes the new 50 foot culvert. The reshaping of Mills Creek will include re-contouring the banks to a 2:1 slope. Gentler slopes along the segment of Mills Creek in the project area can potentially improve water quality by reducing erosion, increasing growth of vegetation, and increasing uptake of nutrients and other substances by vegetation. The reshaping of growth of vegetation, and increasing uptake of nutrients and other substances by vegetation. The reshaping of Mills Creek will not increase drainage capacity beyond the original capacity and will not expand the area drained by Mills Creek. The centerline of the reshaped segment of Mills Creek will be in approximately the same location as the pre-project centerline.
