Water/Wastewater Projects
Truss Bridges Aid Ecological Restoration  Read More

Hendrix Branch

Hendrix Branch Ecological Restoration
Conway, Arkansas - An ecologocal restoration project underway in a mixed-use development area, known as The Village at Hendrix, required a vehicular and a pedestrian bridge to cross the streams and wetlands in the area. A 45’ x 32’ modified bowstring-style, Vehicular Truss bridge with a concrete deck and a 80’ x 8’ Capstone®-style, Continental® truss bridge provided passage for vehicles and pedestrians from The Village to the commercial area nearby. Both structures were chosen for their cost efficiency and inherent aesthetic appeal.

CON/SPAN Conveys Stormwater Without Flooding Trail Below  Read More

Brantner Gulch at Holly Street

Brantner Gulch at Holly Street
Thornton, Colorado - When several flooding events caused Brantner Gulch to overtop Holly Street, a structure was needed to convey a 100-year storm event and provide a pedestrian underpass to allow safe travel for the trail below. A 24' x 11' x 90' CON/SPAN® B-Series Bridge System was selected as the solution for its ability to provide sufficient crest length to collect and convey stormwater runoff without flooding the trail below.

BridgeCor Replaces Undersized Fish Passage  Read More

Pierre Creek

Pierre Creek Culvert Replacement
Boyds, Washington - In the Kettle Falls area of the 1.1-million acre Colville National Forest, an undersized fish passage was in need of replacement. The U.S. Forest Service chose a 21’-6” x 7’-3” x 56'-3" BridgeCor® corrugated-steel box culvert for its ability to provide a safe crossing for the heavy-load trucks traveling to local mills above and a bottomless, environmentally friendly passage below for fish.

CON/SPAN Detention System Contained Under Parking Lot  Read More

URD West Milwaukee

Urban Redevelopment District - West Milwaukee
West Milwaukee, Wisconsin - During the construction/renovation of a 20-acre Urban Redevelopment District, the stormwater management plan needed to be addressed. As mandated by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, redevelopment projects require a 40% Total Suspended Solids reduction in stormwater leaving the project. Due to the urban setting, a “conventional” detention pond was not an option. Instead, a 32’ x 13’ x 827’ CON/SPAN® Detention System was chosen as the solution because it could be contained beneath the parking lot.

Magellan Advantages

Magellan Wastewater System Offers Numerous Operating Advantages
The Magellan™ Decentralized Wastewater Treatment System is a pre-engineered, turn-key solution for treatment of 2,000 to 250,000 gallons of wastewater per day. Magellan’s utilization of steel reinforced polyethylene (SRPE) technology and all-plastic internal components allows for a durable, packaged design that provides fast “plug-and-play” installation. The system's best value is its simple design that provides low-cost operation and maintenance. Magellan offers the following benefits over traditional wastewater treatment systems: fewer repairs, easy cleaning, diffusers that do not clog, low maintenance pumps and low energy costs.

MULTI-PLATE Structures Carry US 35 Across Streams  Read More

US 35

US 35 Stream Crossings
Mason County, West Virginia - When the West Virginia Department of Highways required a new roadway alignment of US 35, multiple stream crossings were needed. Four MULTI-PLATE® structures in various sizes were chosen for the ability to be buried, to handle hydraulic requirements underneath and fill requirements above and for the cost savings.

HEL-COR Reline Solves Cracked Pipe Issue for WI DOT  Read More

Mitchell Interchange

I-94 Reline at Mitchell Interchange
Milwaukee, Wisconsin - Only a year after installing a triple 60-inch-diameter reinforced concrete equalizer pipe under 30-feet of cover at Mitchell Interchange on I-94, the Wisconsin Department of Transportation found that the pipe already needed to be relined due to structural cracks. The Wisconsin DOT chose 54-inch diameter HEL-COR® pipe for its economical cost, durability and wide range of wall thicknesses, corrugations, diameters and pipe section lengths. 

DuroMaxx Innovation Earns Engineering Excellence Award  Read More

Bryan's Lift Station

Bryan's Lift Station CSO
Monticello, Indiana - After a combined sewer overflow detention system was installed for the City of Monticello, innovation was the only thing overflowing. In order to comply with the federal Clean Water Act, improvements were needed to the City's current system. Contech’s DuroMaxx® SRPE pipe system was engineered into a combined sewer overflow detention and drainage system that met the challenges of having a small footprint, water-tight joint performance and long-term durability. This project is a recipient of the Indiana ACEC 2012 Engineering Excellence Honor Award. 

Magellan Treats Wastewater at 16,000 Sq Ft Shopping Center  Read More

Locust Grove

Locust Grove Town Center
Locust Grove, Virginia - The Locust Grove Town Center is a 16,000-square-foot shopping retail center on a 25-acre project site and was required by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality to upgrade its wastewater treatment tank. In order to improve its water quality, an 8' diameter, 37' long Magellan™ Wastewater Treatment System to treat 10,000 GPD was chosen for its cost-effective, "plug and play" design that was easy to install.

CON/SPAN Bridge System Provides Ideal Rehab Solution  Read More

Bartges Street / Ohio-Erie Canal Towpath Trail

Bartges Street / Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail
Akron, Ohio - When the City of Akron was planning the design layout for the final section of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, it was also noted that the Bartges Street Bridge was in a deteriorated condition that warranted extensive maintenance or replacement. The City reviewed several bridge types and determined that two, CON/SPAN® B-series Bridge Systems side-by-side was the best solution.
