Clark Avenue Emergency Culvert Repair, Raleigh, NC

The Clark Avenue Emergency Culvert Repair project was a fast-tracked H&H evaluation and construction design plan project that provided recommendations to replace a 70 year-old failing Corrugated Metal Pipe (CMP) that served approximately 120 acres in downtown Raleigh. Several alternatives were evaluated, ranging from lining the existing 102” X 72” CMP pipe to replacing this pipe with either a dual 60” RCP or 8’ X 5’ box culvert. Ultimately, the most cost-effective recommendation was the installation of a new dual 60” RCP system. Within three weeks, WK Dickson produced the required construction documents detailing the culvert replacement. This quick turnaround allowed the city’s on-call contractor to accelerate construction and replace this culvert in under three months.
