Installation:

April 2011

The City of Lafayette has future plans to expand Elias G Road and, before doing so, needed a storm drain product to enclose a ditch on the roadway.

The City chose DuroMaxx Steel Reinforced Polyethylene (SRPE) pipe from Contech Construction Products Inc. for the drainage improvements because it provided the light weight, low-cost, structural advantages needed on the project.

The combination of 80 ksi steel reinforcing ribs with pressure rated polyethylene resin provided for a strong and durable pipe, exactly what the City was looking for. The smooth inner wall of the pipe also allowed for outstanding hydraulic capacity and long-term service and performance. DuroMaxx also has fewer joints to assemble on site, resulting in faster installation rates for the contractor. Elliot Construction installed 1500-ft. of 60-in. diameter DuroMaxx pipe in just two weeks and all involved were pleased with the outcome.
