The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet needed to replace the KY 263 Highway Bridge in Richardsville, and worked with Contech Engineered Solutions to find a solution.

An Aluminum Box Culvert product was chosen for the project because it was a practical and cost-effective solution. The wide-span, low-rise shapes of an Aluminum Box Culvert are lightweight, as well as fast and easy to install.

Utilizing a product designed for quick installation was important to the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, as one of the major challenges of the project involved the restricting of road closure to a maximum of 4 days.

The project team was able to meet this goal, as well as complete the design, fabrication and installation of the project in less than 60 days.
