It's a private road in rural eastern NC. Nobody will care as long as drainage is not compromised.


If that's the case the fastest is a steel plate as mentioned. Price probably a tossup compared to extending the culvert and filling in with gravel.

I found a landscaper who says he has extended several culverts. This should be the least expensive soluton. Thanks for all the suggestions!!

GOOD, that way your money is going to something you can keep using.

If you can extend the culvert down stream, use a larger whistle, very little digging needed. Just enough to get the larger tube around the smaller, and level the bottom of ditch for pipe. Concrete to keep fill from falling in then compact up to grade.
