Water/Wastewater Projects
EXPRESS Foundations Expedite Installation of Bridge Replacement  Read More

KY 1850

KY 1850 Stream Crossing Uses New EXPRESS Foundations
Warbranch, Kentucky - A low water crossing located on KY 1850 in Leslie County was a continuous maintenance problem for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) and the traveling public. The new solution required a larger, clear span opening, with a quick installation in order to minimize construction time and the disruption to traffic. The KYTC selected a 20’ x 5’ CON/SPAN® B-series Bridge System installed on EXPRESS™ Foundations. This quick, five-hour installation provided at least a three day time savings over a cast-in-place option, with the entire project completed in only eight days.

US Forest Service - East River

U.S. Forest Service — East River, Quigley Creek and Rock Creek
Gothic, Colorado - Three existing structures over streams in the area of the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forest were deteriorating and failure was imminent. Design of the new structures needed to halt the over-topping of the roads during sudden snow melt. As the solutions, the U.S. Forest Service chose Aluminum Box Culverts in the following locations and sizes: East River (20’-3” x 8’-5” x 32’-6”), Quigley Creek (10’ x 4’-10” x 28’) and Rock Creek (10’ x 4’-10” x 28’). These structures were selected for the open bottom design which allows for aquatic passage, ease of installation, the ability to accommodate a limited vertical height as well as low cost.

Canadian Forces Station

Pleasantville Consolidation, Canadian Forces Station St. John's
St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada - Located on the north shore of Quidi Vidi Lake in Newfoundland, the Pleasantville site of the Canadian Forces Station St. John’s holds a significant place in Canadian military history. In use since 1941, the station was in need of repair and project plans called for the construction of five retaining walls throughout the property. As a solution, 35,000 square feet of Keystone Compac III units were utilized because its near vertical construction was vital. Several of the walls support newly constructed loading docks and main parking areas, while other walls increase the amount of usable land surrounding the new facility.

Trapper's Point Wildlife Overpass

WYDOT Highway 191 - Trapper's Point
Pinedale, Wyoming - After a study found that the pronghorn antelope's migration route had been severely affected by increased traffic along U.S. Highway 191 in the area of Trapper's Point, a solution was needed. In order to provide a safer route for both wildlife and vehicles, the WYDOT chose two BEBO® Bridge Concrete Arch Systems — 66’ x 24’ x 150’ and 78’ x 27’-10” x 150’ in size — to serve highway traffic below and wildlife corridors above. These structures were chosen for their ability to be installed rapidly with minimal disruption to highway traffic and the animal's migration.

City of Culver Lagoon

City of Culver Effluent Storage Lagoon
Culver, Oregon - The City of Culver, Oregon was in need of a better solution to recycle and reuse the wastewater stored in their lagoons, so that they would still be able to accomplish land disposal. The City selected DuroMaxx® steel reinforced polyethylene (SRPE) to provide the needed storage unit for both its durability as well as its economic advantage over solid wall high density polyethlene (HDPE).

Keystone Compac II Units Lead Road Improvement Project  Read More

88th Street

NE 88th Street Improvement
Vancouver, Washington -  When daily traffic along the two-lane stretch of NE 88th Street — running from Highway 99 East to NE St. John’s Road — became too congested, Clark County decided it was time for a major improvement. Plans included widening the road and the addition of 38 different retaining walls. Adhering to specifications from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), Clark County chose 30,000 square feet of KeySystem II (KeyGrid) as the solution for its ability to be built in a near vertical setback (0.25” per 8” course) maximizing the space available to widen the road.

Martinsville, Virginia - When Monogram Snacks purchased an existing industrial facility, it was necessary to upgrade the system to meet new requirements. As a solution, a Magellan Wastewater Treatment System was chosen for its ability to be readily implemented without the need for substantial infrastructure changes and expansions. It also offered sustainable treatment capability for less initial capital cost, and the steel reinforced polyethylene vessel was recognized as being superior to concrete and steel.

Sweetwater Creek

Sweetwater Creek State Park
Lithia Springs, Georgia - When intense flooding occured at Sweetwater Creek Park, it destroyed an existing truss bridge, breaking an important connection along the trail. Chosen for its quality and economical aspect, a 10’ x 200’ Gateway® style, Continental® truss bridge with a weathering steel finish and wood decking was selected as the best replacement option. The quick installation of the new structure restored the trail connection in a timely manner with minimal disturbance to the site.
