SR 32 Small Structure Replacement 20.06 (Des. 1800132)

The existing 56” metal pipe arch culvert under SR 32 in Fountain County was heavily rusted. HWC completed design of this spot improvement project including hydraulics and right-of-way acquisition. Two small pipes (CLV’s) were near this culvert and had failed as well. All three pipes were included in the project for replacement for more efficient use of a contractor’s mobilization to the area and project costs. Riprap requirements at the culvert outlet required additional right-of-way acquisition for the project. Overhead utility conflicts were avoided because the new pipes were lightweight and easy to install with smaller equipment. A buried utility was relocated beyond the new pipes. The construction cost was $230,000.
