Construction of the new Lake Wohlford Dam is proposed immediately downstream of the existing dam. The left abutment of the proposed dam will conflict with the existing Oakvale Road, so the road must be realigned prior to the construction of the new dam.
The Oakvale Road Realignment Project will realign an approximately 1,200-foot section of Oakvale Road near the Lake Wohlford Dam, straightening the road and moving it toward the south. The realignment will require excavation into the adjacent hillside to remove approximately 56,000 cubic yards (cy) of rock and earth to create space for realigning the road, which would be shifted a maximum distance of approximately 150 feet to the south of the existing alignment. The existing roadway will remain in service during construction of the new roadway.
Estimated Construction Schedule – 365 calendar days; The City Council awarded the project to L.B. Civil Construction, Inc. on May 12, 2021, in the amount of $8,467,520. Construction began in July 2021 and is expected to be completed by March 2024.
