Water/Wastewater Projects
CON/SPAN O-Series Provides Emergency Bridge Replacement  Read More

KY 687 Bridge over Little Goose Creek

KY 687 Bridge over Little Goose Creek at M.P. 13.476
Manchester, Kentucky - This 59' x 12'-4 3/4" CON/SPAN® O-Series® Bridge System, 32' in length, was selected by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 11 as a replacement for a conventional box beam bridge. Upon inspection of the original box beam bridge, it was reduced to a 3 ton load limit due to broken steel strands in the beams. With area school buses and truck traffic required to take a 45 minute detour to reach their final destination, a quick solution was needed. The precast CON/SPAN O-Series structure was selected for its ability to be designed, fabricated and installed within just 30 days.

Continental Spans Stream, Provides Missing Trail Link  Read More

Black Forest Trail

Black Forest Trail
Slate Run, Pennsylvania - First opened in the early 1970's, the popular, 42-mile long Black Forest Trail annually attracts thousands of hikers. Since 1996, however, the trail has been missing a vital link making a 7.5-mile segment inaccessible to hikers not wishing to ford a swollen stream. As a solution, a 120'-6" x 5'-7" Connector®-style, Continental® truss bridge was installed across the stream, providing hikers with a safe alternative and completing the hiking loop. 

TerreArch Provides Stormwater Solution at Shopping Site  Read More

Festival Shoppes

Festival Shoppes
Boca Raton, Florida - Festival Shoppes is a new commercial development consisting of 10,636 square feet of retail space and 6,225 square feet of restaurant space. Since it was imperative that a stormwater system at this site met many different requirements, engineers from Kimley Horn and Associates worked with Contech to develop a solution consisting of 367 Terre ArchTM 48 chambers, a modular, precast concrete stormwater storage system providing 247,517 cubic feet of storage.

ULTRA FLO Creates Diversion Channel to Reroute River around Deficient Dam  Read More

San Clemente Dam

San Clemente Dam Removal
Carmel Valley, California - The San Clemente Dam, located just downstream of the confluence of the Carmel River and San Clemente Creek, has blocked both the river and the creek for 94 years. After being declared a seismic hazard by the California Department of Water Resources, the dam was put out of commission. Before the dam could be removed, 3,000 LF of ULTRA FLO® corrugated metal pipe (CMP) was installed to create a diversion channel effectively rerouting the Carmel River around the dam. Upon completion, the 106 foot high antiquated dam will be removed and the watershed restoration process will bring the Carmel River back to life.

Continental, CON/SPAN and DuroMaxx Provide Solutions at Military Hospital  Read More

Camp Pendleton Hospital

Camp Pendleton Hospital
Oceanside, California - Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is the Corps’ largest West Coast expeditionary training facility encompassing more than 125,000 acres and housing more than 38,000 military families. During a recent expansion, a four-story, 500,000 square foot medical treatment facility was constructed. Selected as the best solutions for the project were: (1) a 24’ x 8’ CON/SPAN® B-Series Bridge System, 132’ in length, which was utilized for its ability to avoid the waters of the U.S. stream delineated area, (2) a 40’ x 6’ Continental® Connector® Truss Bridge, which provided pedestrians with access to the hospital, and (3) a 120" DuroMaxx® Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) System, 240’ in length, which stored sanitary sewage.

CON/SPAN O-Series Replaces Deteriorating Bridge  Read More

Maple Drive

Maple Drive
Griffin, Georgia - The City of Griffin needed to replace a deteriorating bridge on Maple Drive. Due to a high volume of school bus traffic and a potentially lengthy detour, the project needed to be completed over the summer while school was not in session. Since the lead time for a conventional bridge was outside of the allowable time for completion, a 31’ x 7'-3” CON/SPAN® O-Series® Bridge System, 42’ in length, was selected as the best solution for its ability to meet the deadline in a cost effective manner.

CDS System Screens, Separates and Traps Debris from Stormwater Runoff  Read More

Humboldt River Greenway

Humboldt River Greenway
Los Angeles, California - The Humboldt River Greenway project became one of many Bureau of Engineering projects targeted for change. To address the stormwater runoff conditions that plagued the small one-acre park, the City of Los Angeles selected a CDS hydrodynamic separation system as the best solution for its ability to pre-treat runoff. The CDS system screens, separates and traps debris, sediment, oil and grease from the stormwater runoff before it reaches the Los Angeles River. 

DuroMaxx Deemed Best Replacement  Read More

U.S. Route 1 - Warren, Maine Culvert Replacement

US Route 1 - Warren, Maine Culvert Replacement
Prock Marine Rockland, Maine - During a general inspection in the Town of Warren, the Maine Department of Transportation (MEDOT) determined that a large culvert under U.S. Route 1 was in need of replacement. Selected for its competitive price, shorter lead time and light weight, DuroMaxx® SRPE was deemed the best solution to replace approximately half of the existing culvert structure that ran directly under the highway. 

Continental Provides Safe Crossing for Boy Scouts  Read More

Boy Scout Camp Tahquitz

Boy Scout Camp Tahquitz - Highway 38
Angelus Oaks, California - Owned by the Long Beach Area Council Boy Scouts of America, the 640-acre Camp Tahquitz annually serves approximately 16,000 Scouts. Since Highway 38 bisects the camp, Scouts were required to cross the dangerously busy highway in order to participate in activities located throughout the camp. After four years of planning and fundraising, the camp raised enough money to install a 100' x 8' Connector®-style, Continental® truss bridge. Exhibiting an extremely generous spirit, two firms, Prime Source Consulting and Moffatt & Nichol donated design time while the contractor, Powell Constructors, donated its time and labor during installation of the bridge.

Liner Plate Reinforces Original Triple Barrel Culvert  Read More

SR 0006 Culvert Rehab

SR 0006 Culvert Rehab
Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania - Engineers in the Douglassville, PA office of STV Inc. noticed a potential issue in inspection videos that looked like the pipe structures running under a Pennsylvania DOT (PennDOT) arterial highway had major corrosion and structural issues. The overall project consisted of nearly 8 miles of four-lane divided arterial roadway of SR 6 constructed in the early 1950’s. As a solution, it was decided that the existing triple barrel culvert be reinforced with 2-Flange Tunnel Liner Plate with the diameter manufactured to maximize the hydraulic opening, while also providing adequate space between the old pipe and the liner for constructability.
