The King St. culvert was constructed in 1960 and is located along King St. (Regional Rd. 81) in Town of Lincoln; 0.2 kilometres east of Jordan Rd. (Regional Rd. 26).
King St. is a major east / west roadway extending from the Niagara Pkwy. in Niagara-on-the-Lake to the west boundary between Niagara Region and the City of Hamilton.
The King St. Culvert is a single span reinforced concrete culvert with a span of 5.20m. The purpose of the construction is to replace the existing culvert with a new precast concrete structure to sustain transportation connectivity.
The 2017 Municipal Bridge Appraisal identified severe scaling, deterioration and cracking on the culvert structure. Further assessment deemed the structure beyond repair or rehabilitation to extend its service life. As a result, Niagara Region will remove and replace the existing culvert with a similar structure.
