Stringtown Road links the residential community of Vandalia with State Route 101 and access from the Ilwaco Airport. The Stringtown culverts are located at MP 0.13 and are a series of three cross culverts placed to allow the Wallicut River to cross on its way to Baker's Bay. These culverts were placed in the mid to late 1970's. The first cross culvert is a 42" diameter corrugated metal pipe, the second cross culvert is a 60" diameter corrugated metal pipe, and the third cross culvert is a 42" diameter corrugated metal pipe. All three culverts have cast iron tide gates. The tide gates control the waters from Baker's Bay and protect the community of Vandalia, the public airport, and the surrounding farm lands from flooding. The three culverts would be removed and replaced with one large aluminum cross culvert, aluminum tide gate and concrete headwall. The roadway would be closed to all traffic during removal/replacement. The roadway would be resurfaced in this area with hot mix asphalt and safety guardrail placed. The culverts are deteriorating and the tide gates have fallen off and been reattached multiple times. All construction will be performed by a single contract.
