Kinsman dam getting new concrete barrier

KINSMAN — Jet Excavating since last week has been working to create and put in a concrete barrier near the culvert area below the new Lakeview Drive put in last fall.

Trustee Greg Leonhard, who lives nearby, said the concrete barrier will help with the outflow of water through the culverts so water discharging does not wash out the stones below the road.

He said work began last week and cement was being poured this week.

Jet Excavating worked to get Lakeview Drive installed in the area where the road was washed out by heavy rains in July 2019. The road reopened Oct. 24 at a cost of $1.8 million to get residents back to the Lakelands area.
