Concrete Box Culverts’ Enhanced Flow Capacity Overcomes Diverse Site Challenges

Concrete box culverts manufactured by County Materials are a versatile storm water management system that can also be used for a wide variety of other applications.

In challenging situations where greater flow capacity is required than can be achieved with circular and elliptical concrete pipe, concrete box culverts are an ideal solution. Examples include water diversion projects or hydroelectric generation facilities that require high flow capacity. Other suitable applications requiring enhanced flow capacity include groundwater recharge systems and underground storm water retention structures.

The flat interior and exterior surfaces of box culverts also allow them to be used for a variety of bridge applications, such as livestock and pedestrian traffic, or golf cart underpasses. Additionally, the precast concrete structures can support the weight of large vehicles, making them usable as short span highway bridges. 

Requiring minimal maintenance over a service life that can exceed 100 years, concrete box culverts are a cost-effective solution that can also accelerate project timelines because they are delivered on site ready for installation.
