Contech Ribbed Aluminum Box Culvert (ABC)

The objective of this research project is to document all phases of the installation practice of the aluminum box culvert (ABC) unit. Issues such as special backfill required, installation of reinforcing ribs, equipment required, and construction loading will supplement the report. This project will provide a comparison with the current use of steel structural plate pipe. The project will monitor and report on long-term performance. The research will monitor performance for a minimum period of five years annually, with every year up to *ten years (informally). This is in accordance with the Department's "Experimental Project Procedures". Delivery of a construction/installation report, interim, annual or semi-annual reports is required as well as a final project report. A web page will be dedicated to display all reporting from the project.
