After constructing the first 1.5 mi of the Stroube Drain cast-in-place, reinforced concrete box culvert, the owner discovered the design did not consider live loads for the most severe traffic orientation. The owner wanted to know if cracking they observed resulted from a design issue and if it would affect durability. SGH evaluated the structural adequacy and durability of the as-built culvert and also served as a neutral party with binding rulings during the dispute resolution.
