SR 32 Small Structure Replacement 24.08 (Des. 1800134)

The existing 56” metal pipe arch culvert under SR 32 in Fountain County was heavily rusted and did not meet hydraulic backwater requirements. The replacement pipe is a 6’ diameter pipe, and the existing roadway met level 1 conditions. The shoulder and embankments at the pipe were transitioned at a 4:1 slope to provide additional clear space over the structure to improve safety. The project also included a level 2 environmental document and right-of-way reacquisition. There were no utility conflicts at this structure. The construction cost was $175,000.
