The Speen Street Culvert conveys the Beaver Dam Brook and connects Settlement Pond to Fisk Pond in Natick, Massachusetts.  The original double-barrel, stone-arch culvert is believed to be over 100 years old.  Following the partial collapse of the headwall and roadway in 2010, the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) was concerned about public safety, flooding potential, emergency access, and stability of utility lines running between the street and culvert.  SGH evaluated the condition of the culvert and designed a replacement.
