Sakatah Singing Hills State Trail - Fairbault to Mankato
Rehabilitation of a total of nine stone masonry culverts located along the State Trail corridor between Faribault and Mankato.
The Sakatah-Singing Hills State Trail is located on a former abandoned railroad grade originally constructed in the 3rd quarter of the 19th Century. The State Trail, which extends between Mankato and Faribault, includes a total of nine large limestone block, masonry culverts. The culverts range from 8x8 feet to 3x3 feet which lengths ranging from 24 to 103 feet. The rehabilitation of these structures is to include the setting and replacement of missing or deteriorated stone blocks, installation of tie-back wall reinforcement, mortar repairs/replacement and inlet/outlet revetment. The completion of the rehabilitation of all nine culverts is presently scheduled for 2012.
