Depending on the waterway an improperly sized culvert can cause more harm than good during large rain events. While aggravating for you it is for good reason.

One suggestion is, see if there is a college nearby with a civil engineering program. This sort of thing would be good for students to work on since that sort of thing looks really good on a resume. That way the engineering is free and now you're left with construction costs.

Another suggestion is to look into park improvement grants. They do exist and are a royal PITA sometimes to get might be worth it. Get the right grant and you might be able to do A LOT more than install a foot bridge.
