Hurricane Ingrid and tropical storm Manuel caused the collapse of a vehicular bridge. in Coyuca de Benitez Guerrero Mexico in September 2013 Standard sized 96 inch diameter. reinforced concrete pipe RCP produced by Tubocreto1 was used by the Ministry of Com. munications and Transportation SCT to temporarily replace the collapsed bridge2 The SCT s. decision to work with its local concrete pipe supplier to resolve a situation that threatened the. health and safety of nearby communities as well as the economy of a region including the. tourist industry in Acapulco one of Mexico s oldest and best known beach locations heralds a. new era in which standard size concrete pipes can be included in rapid response strategies to. address natural and man made calamities, The bridge at Coyuca de Ben tez was 110 meters long A temporary structure to ford the. shallow crossing required 112 units of 96 inch diameter RCP with lay lengths of 2 40 meters. The design required 28 culverts with four units of pipe comprising each structure The 28 struc. tures were drawn together and stabilized using three quarter inch steel cable Once the decision. was taken to build the temporary bridge 300 workers using excavators compactors loaders and. dump trucks completed the structure in ten days The road bed measured seven meters with. shoulders one meter wide on each side An asphalt surface and metal guardrails completed the. structure and the crossing was opened to the public and commerce. Not only is the structure a very good example of rapid response strategies being developed. throughout North America for failed infrastructure due to major storms but it has shown to be an. environmental success because the impact on the aquatic environment was minimized through. rapid construction and the concrete pipes can be removed and reused for other purposes at any. time Different pipe materials such as thermoplastic or corrugated metal for example could not. be used to temporarily replace structures such as the bridge in Coyuca de Benitez. Concrete pipe producers throughout North America have rapidly upgraded their production. facilities over the past 20 years taking advantage of automation and the introduction of robotic. plants to raise the quality of their products Tubocreto committed to this technology shift and has. significantly raised the quality of its standard pipe and box products in all three of its production. plants The company tests the strength of its precast boxes used for culverts according to har. monised European Standard BS EN 14844 2006 A2 2011 Category I Precast Products Box.

Night time installation of precast,concrete culvert. Vermont Specifies Precast Concrete Box Culverts for Resilient. Infrastructure,By Trygve W Hoff P E Northeast Regional Engineer.

Vermont s Agency of Transportation VTrans has approached critical infrastructure with tenacity. and resolve Since 2011 after Hurricane Irene VTrans has been dealt a difficult hand regarding. extreme weather And yet the country s sixth smallest state has responded admirably to the chal. lenges of severe weather patterns and may very well be leading the nation toward resilient infra. structure by sharing their knowledge1, In 2011 Hurricane Irene damaged more than 2000 culverts in Vermont2 One of those corrugated. metal pipe CMP culverts was replaced with a precast arch box on the Town of Townshend s Town. shend Dam Road To rebuild a resilient infrastructure the washed out CMP culvert was replaced with. a precast structure prior to acceptance by the Federal Emergency Management Agency FEMA. After an initial FEMA ruling that the box was an upgrade VTrans defended the municipality s deci. sion through two appeals leading to the announcement by Governor Peter Shumlin3 and Vermont s. Congressional Delegation on March 22 2013 that FEMA would agree to fund the replacement This. ruling set a precedent that could allow dozens of Vermont culvert replacements to qualify for funds. Perhaps the most dramatic example of VTrans progression towards a resilient infrastructure oc. curred on April 20 2013 when a 60 inch diameter HDPE pipe culvert which a few months earlier had. replaced a deteriorated CMP culvert washed out in the darkness of the early morning due to a flash. flood A family returning from the local airport in two cars encountered the washout Both vehicles. initially fell 5 feet before sinking another 20 as the chasm expanded to 30 feet wide by 25 feet deep. Injuries were not life threatening The failed flexible pipe culverts on Mines Road4 near Lowell were. eventually replaced with reinforced concrete box culverts. Since Irene VTrans5 and many municipal public works agencies have been given the ways and. means for specifying concrete for the replacement or construction of culverts Concrete culverts add. long term value to asset management plans and can be specified under MAP 21 Moving Ahead for. Progress in the 21st Century Act allowing states to specify the appropriate pipe material without. appearing biased Precast boxes have the added benefit of meeting the state s standards on fluvial. geomorphology often considered as important as hydraulic or structural considerations Boxes can. be installed deeper in the streambed with or without baffles to capture sediment and extend the natu. ral channel through the box, One of the primary drivers in culvert replacement in Vermont and throughout the country is the. Interstate System from the 1950s to 80s which primarily utilized metal culverts In Vermont these. Interstate metal culverts corrode due to abrasion by high velocities in the mountains and chemistry of. the water If failure is imminent then a precast concrete box replacement is strongly considered. Replacement of CMP culverts, Perhaps even before the FHWA rolled out Accelerated Bridge Construction ABC VTrans was. that have reached the end of their focused on accelerated construction Their primary goal is the quick replacement of critical culverts. service life before the design life and short bridges Constructing culverts with RCBs is an important option for the department By. of the Interstate highway system rerouting traffic for a short period it can save the expenses of temporary lanes or bridges Fitting. Night time installation of precast concrete culvert Replacement of CMP culverts that have reached the end of their service life before the design life of the Interstate highway system in Vermont Boxes can be installed deeper than the streambed to capture sediment and extend the natural channel 4 ACPA Concrete Pipe News Winter 2015 Volume 67
