Stanton, TX — Snap-Tite used for culvert rehabilitation at DOT yard entrance
Snap-Tite® Pipe Relines Damaged Culvert Under Entrance to Texas DOT Maintenance Yard
An arched (32 by 24-inch diameter) corrugated metal pipe (CMP) culvert located under the entrance leading into the Stanton Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) maintenance office in Martin County was past its design life and starting to fail. This was the only entrance into the Stanton DOT yard, so digging and replacing the culvert was not an option.
Snap-Tite® representative Trevor Cone worked with the TXDOT Odessa District to determine the best solution to repair the culvert without disrupting traffic flow on the road leading to the maintenance office. Cone suggested the use of 20-inch high-density polyethylene (HDPE) Snap-Tite® pipe liner to reline the culvert, thus eliminating any need to dig up the road.
The no-dig HDPE Snap-Tite® culvert-lining pipe, which has a patented male/female machining at each end of the HDPE, is ‘snapped’ together, piece-by-piece, and pushed into the full length of an existing pipe. Any annular space and voids between the old culvert and new liner are filled in with grout. The pipe liner is available in lengths from two feet to 50 feet, and is available for culverts with diameters from eight inches to 84 inches. SnapTite® also meets American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Standard M326 for rehabilitating culverts.
