Document Description
This project proposes the removal of a failed 36-inch primary galvanized pipe and a 16-inch secondary galvanized pipe located above the 36-inch pipe. The failed pipes will be replaced with one new 48-inch galvanized steel pipe. Due to the pipe failure and subsequent erosion, other necessary repairs will include: the roadway section, outflow of the pipe and the shoulder of the roadway. Work includes removal of an 8-foot-wide by 40-foot-long section of damaged asphalt road surface with spoils to be retained and re-utilized at facility, removal of approximately 30 yards of soil, removal of existing failed 36-inch and 16-inch culverts, removal of damaged outfall head wall with natural rocks from head wall to be re-utilized. Placement of new 48-inch culvert in two 20-foot sections with transit mix concrete seal to be poured in place, compaction of excavated soils around newly placed 48-inch culvert to 8-inched below existing road surface. Placement of 8-inch thick cement cap to existing road surface elevation to replace excavated portion of roadway requiring 8 yards of concrete and installation of concrete with salvaged rock facade placed on head-wall requiring 2 yards of concrete.
