Water/Wastewater Projects
BEBO, MULTI-PLATE AND HEL-COR Installed Along New Roadway  Read More

Quitchupah Creek Road

Quitchupah Creek Road
Sevier County, Utah - In service since 1941, the Sufco Mine is one of the largest producing coal mines in the country. The Quitchupah Creek Road project was initiated to reduce the cost of delivering coal from the mine to nearby power plants. The $32 million project included construction of 11 miles of new roadway, five wildlife crossing structures — three, 10 gage 20’-5” x 13’ MULTI-PLATE® structures (250’ in length), and two twin-leaf precast 36’ x 14’ BEBO® arch systems (160’ in length) — 23,000 square feet of Mechanically Stabilized Earth (MSE) retaining walls, 900 linear feet of twin, 14’ diameter structural steel MULTI-PLATE structures (under 100+ feet of fill) and over 12,000 linear feet of HEL-COR® corrugated steel pipe (CSP) for drainage. Overall, the project reduced the haul distance by 46 miles round trip resulting in significant, long-term time, cost-savings and environmental impact. 

DuroMaxx Pipe Sliplines Existing Culvert to Increase Structure Life  Read More

Simms Creek

Galerno Road over Simms Creek Reline
Campbell River, British Columbia - While completing repair work along Galerno Road, the City of Campbell River noticed an existing culvert had exceeded its 60+ year service life and was in need of rehabilitation or replacement. The decision was made to extend the life of the culvert by sliplining it with a 120" diameter DuroMaxx® steel reinforced polyethylene pipe. The DuroMaxx pipe provided a lightweight, economical choice that fit easily inside the existing structure, while the smooth interior wall allowed for an enhanced hydraulic performance.

CDS Treats Stormwater at Largest Copper Mine  Read More

Bingham Canyon

Bingham Canyon Mine
Bingham Canyon, Utah - Throughout its history, the Bingham Canyon Mine has produced more copper than any other mine in the world. During an expansion project, a CDS® 5640 hydrodynamic separator was selected to treat stormwater before discharge into an onsite retention pond that allows water to slowly percolate into the soil. The patented system screens, separates and traps debris, sediment and oil from stormwater runoff and is an ideal system to meet trash Total Maximum Daily Load requirements. The system has no moving parts and requires little maintenance.

Aluminum Box Culverts Extend Existing Structure  Read More

KY 626

KY 626 Culvert Extension
Morgantown, Kentucky - When scour eroded the ends of a culvert along KY 626, a solution was needed to stop the scour and widen both shoulders along the highway. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet selected two 13’-10” x 5’-5” Aluminum Box Culverts to extend the length of the existing structure. End treatments were added to both extensions in order to protect against future scour.

Continentals Provide Pedestrians with Safe Passage Over Highway  Read More

Wolf Trap

Wolf Trap over VA-267
Vienna, Virginia - When the neighborhoods and communities surrounding Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts (WTNP) needed a safe way to cross the Dulles Access and Toll Road, they contacted public officials to gain support for the installation of a pedestrian/bicycle bridge. Overall, three Connector® / modified Capstone®-style, Continental® truss bridges were installed in the following sizes and locations: a 16’ x 149’-11” over Eastbound VA-267, a 16’ x 170’-2” over Dulles Access and a 16’ x 138’-7¼” over Westbound VA-267. The Continental structures were selected by FHWA for the ability to be installed at night with little disruption to traffic.

CON/SPAN O-Series Avoids Permitting Issues  Read More

Auburn Technology Park

Auburn Technology Park
Auburn, Alabama - The City of Auburn’s industrial base is built around small to mid-sized value added, technology based manufacturing corporations. During the construction of a new roadway within the Auburn Technology Park West section, the City searched for a stream crossing solution with a short timeframe. In order to avoid timely and costly permitting issues, a 40’ x 10’ CON/SPAN® O-Series Bridge System, 54’ in length, was selected over a conventional box culvert. The precast system was chosen for its quick installation and ability to clear span the stream without impacting the environment.

SUPER-PLATE Relines Original, 159 Year Old Structure  Read More

Main Street over Stony Creek

Main Street over Stony Creek
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania -  Determined to be structurally deficient, the original 159 year old structure on Main Street was in desperate need of rehabilitation in order to continue to carry 20,000 vehicles per day over Stony Creek. Since the structure was deemed a “contributing element” in the historic area, it was imperative that the structure be maintained rather than replaced. For this reason, the structure was strengthened and relined with a 37’-10” x 12’-11” SUPER-PLATE® structure, 76’-6” in length. 

SPR PE Restores Structural Integrity of Existing Pipe  Read More

South Kansas River Pump Station

South Kansas River Pump Station
Topeka, Kansas - The City of Topeka scheduled the repair of several hundred feet of deteriorating reinforced concrete pipe sanitary sewer line at their South Kansas River Pump Station. Rather than undergo a costly replacement that would close the pump station and interrupt the high water flow during excavation, the City selected Contech’s SPR™ PE pipe liner for its ability to restore the structural integrity of the original 78” diameter pipe and prevent failures, while also reducing the groundwater infiltration into the system. 

MULTI-PLATE and Keystone Compac II Create Safe Passage for Pedestrians  Read More

Snake River

Snake River Corridor Enhancement
Lewiston, Idaho - Since Snake River Avenue serves as a main traffic artery for nearly 60,000 valley residents and runs alongside a popular recreation location, the Snake River National Trail, traffic is consistently heavy. In order to improve pedestrian safety in the area, the City of Lewiston decided to add new walking paths with access to trails on both sides of Snake Avenue. A 15'-9" x 15'-1" MULTI-PLATE® tunnel, 59'-4" in length, and 2,500 square feet of Keystone Compac II were selected to provide a safe crossing point for pedestrians, while being strong enough to support the road and its heavy traffic load. 

UrbanGreen, DuroMaxx, CMP Detention and CDS Effectively Manage Stormwater  Read More

Taylor Yard Transit Village

Taylor Yard Transit Village
Los Angeles, California - Situated along the Los Angeles River, a 24-acre site known as Parcel C at Taylor Yard is being transformed into a transit oriented mixed-use development with 30,000 SF of retail and 401 affordable housing units. In order to meet local stormwater retention sizing requirements while maximizing the available land space at the site, a combination of the following products were utilized: an UrbanGreen™ Rainwater Harvesting system made from 145 LF of 120” diameter DuroMaxx® Steel Reinforced Polyethylene, two corrugated metal pipe (CMP) detention systems, 120" and 114" in diameter, as well as a CDS® system for pretreatment of the water. Together, the UrbanGreen Rainwater Harvesting and stormwater management systems played an essential role in this initiative at the Taylor Yard site.
