Replacing a culvert will close one of White Bluff’s busiest streets through the end of the year. Work is scheduled to begin Monday on the project on Taylor Town Road and is likely to last for the next 8-10 weeks. White Bluff has received a $754,000 grant from the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency for mitigation measures following the historic May 2010 flood. During the flood, debris backed up at the culvert at the base of Buck Spring hill, damaging the culvert structure and causing water to wash over the road. The disaster relief grant is allowing the existing culvert to be replaced with a new one designed to help prevent any buildup at the entrance. But the project will consists of a 40-foot cut in the area of 1256 Taylor Town Road, closing the road to all through traffic. Public Works Director Jeff Martin said the “road will be impassable” and through traffic will be re-routed to School and Pleasant View roads. Martin said the Dickson County school system’s transportation department has been advised and has set out new routes for buses. Emergency responders and central communications have been notified as well as area businesses that regularly use Taylor Town Road. Mayor Linda Hayes said the town’s street department has been preparing Pleasant View Road for the increase in traffic. The low bid for the culvert project actually came in under the total grant funds, so the town also is looking to do some mitigation work in Greenfield Ridge. Martin said once the Taylor Town Road project is completed, the town will decided whether to continue with the additional work or temporarily stop and wait until spring depending on the extent of winter weather.
