 Description
Mingo Straits is 2 1/2 mile long, 8ft parabolic arch storm drains that are straight as an arrow for their entire length. Flap gates are on either side of the tunnels, and will close during high waters in Mingo Creek to prevent flooding the intake for the local neighborhoods.

Be sure to bring something to do, otherwise, you're in for disappointment.
