DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
Failing culverts pose serious hazards to travelers, businesses, and citizens. This FREE TECHNICAL REPORT will educate you on the design considerations you need to know to ensure your structures are sound and reliable.Design engineers and owner-managers are responsible for ensuring structures are sound and reliable. Consulting engineers, airport maintenance managers, railway maintenance and engineering divisions, DOT, county, and municipal managers and engineers all play a critical role in conducting routine inspections and repairs.

Many repairs must be accomplished with zero to minimal impact on businesses, residents, and traffic, such as airline, rail, interstate commerce or county, and municipal travel. And further complicating some repairs is the need for environmental sensitivity—for instance, when a floodplain, wetland, or erosive site, among other possibilities, is involved. 

This design review features three separate projects requiring structural repairs, with limited to zero interruption of aboveground transportation. One of these cases also illustrates precautions implemented to protect a sensitive 100-year flood plain with steep, erosive banks.Download this FREE TECHNICAL REPORT today!
