Franklin, TN — Snap-Tite Replaces Failing Residential Culvert
Residential Property Left Undisturbed with Culvert Lining Solution
A corrugated metal pipe (CMP) culvert located in a residential neighborhood on Sugatree Lane in Franklin, TN, was failing. It started at a junction box in the backyard of two houses and ran between the property-lines underneath the road, and outlet into a creek. In addition, this CMP was oval, not round, measuring 68 inches by 38 inches. The City of Franklin needed to act quickly to repair the culvert before it failed completely. Fixing the CMP would require a no-dig solution because digging up the culvert would compromise the foundation of the homes.
The city asked the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) to recommend a culvert lining product and company who had experience with lining techniques and technologies. The TDOT recommended the Snap-Tite culvert lining system. Snap-Tite representative Ryan Harrington worked with the city engineer, Paul Holzen to decide on the best solution for the oval culvert.
