1 Bruce Wagener, PE Eric Leagjeld, PE
Culvert Repair Best Practices, Specifications and Special Provisions Best Practices Guidelines Bruce Wagener, PE Eric Leagjeld, PE

2 Goals Provide guidance to MnDOT engineers in making better decisions on culvert repairs Provide guidelines, Special Provisions and Standard Details that will standardize practices and increase effectiveness and longevity of repairs

3 Focus Trenchless rehabilitation or repair of CMP and RCP culverts from 24 to 72 inches in diameter

4 Outline Overview of rehabilitation, repair, and replacement
Describe project tasks Walk through the Guidelines document Special Provisions and Standard Details prepared

5 Definitions Trenchless: Repair or rehabilitation that does not involve excavating the roadway Rehabilitation: The existing culvert pipe is returned to its initial condition or better Repair: A maintenance activity that keeps the existing culvert in a uniformly good safe condition Replace: Removal or abandonment of the existing culvert by open cut or trenchless methods

6 Project Tasks Task A—Survey MnDOT, cities, counties, and contractors
Task B—Survey of other state’s DOT’s Task C—Research Synthesis: Literature review of information provided in SP&R Work Plan, Tasks A and B, and other sources Task D—Best Practices Guidelines, Special Provisions, and Standard Details Task E—Feasibility Study: Recommendations for evaluating culvert rehabilitation and repair methods

7 Best Practices Guidelines
Special Provisions Standard Details

8 Best Practices Guidelines
Introduction Culvert Repair Process Preparation for Rehabilitation or Repair Culvert Rehabilitation Methods Culvert Repair Methods Replacement using Open Cut Replacement using Trenchless Methods

9 2. Culvert Repair Process
Identify the Problem Determine the Cause(s) of Deterioration Evaluate the Structural Condition Evaluate the Hydraulic Condition Evaluate Repair, Rehabilitation, and Replacement Options Implement the Design Maintain the Repairs

10 Rigid vs. Flexible Pipes
Rigid Pipe: Substantially self-supporting and relies on the surrounding soil for only a small fraction of its overall strength. (RCP) Flexible Pipe: Designed using soil structure interaction, where the majority of the pipe’s strength is derived from the quality of the backfill soils and compaction. (CMP, PVC, HDPE and fiberglass)

11 Repair, Rehabilitation, and Replacement Options
Inspect Repair Rehabilitate Replace

12 Repair and Rehabilitation Method Guidance
Recommendations from suppliers, fabricators, or specialists HydInfra suggested repairs reports and flow charts FHWA Culvert Assessment and Decision-Making Procedures Manual FHWA Hydraulics Toolbox Caltrans Supplement to FHWA Culvert Repair Practices Manual

13 HydInfra Suggested Repair Methods

14 3. Preparation for Repair or Rehabilitation
Environmental protection Flow diversion Infiltration control Cleaning Checking culvert clearance Other preparatory work Safety

15 4. Rehabilitation Methods
Paved invert Cured-in-place pipe liner (CIPP) Sliplining Centrifugally cast concrete mortar liner Spirally wound liners Close-fit liners Shotcrete

16 Paved Invert Use in CMP or RCP Cast-in-place concrete
Welded wire fabric (WWF) or rebar reinforcing Anchored to existing culvert

17 Cured in Place Felt tube saturated with resin
Pull in place or inverted Polyester or vinyl ester resins Epoxy resins for special conditions Generally not bonded to culvert

18 Sliplining

19 Centrifugally Cast Liner
Cementitious or other material applied by an electric or air-powered rotating head Usually applied to CMP Thickness controlled by speed that the machine is pulled through the culvert Cementitious mortars discussed in Guidelines

20 Spirally Wound Liners

21 Close Fit Liners

22 Shotcrete Liners Placement of invert Completed liner

23 5. Repair methods Spall repair Joint repair methods
Filling voids outside the culvert Joint sealing with internal packers CMP seam repair Invert plating Sprayed coatings and linings Slab jacking Compaction grouting

24 Spall Repair Repair spalls of concrete due to movement, freeze/thaw, structural distress, deicing materials, etc Personnel entry required Similar to paved inverts

25 Joint Repair Fix infiltration and exfiltration at joints to prevent ground loss and surface settlement Infiltration can lead to culvert deformation if soil support is lost Guidelines discuss personnel entry joint repairs Remote repairs are also possible

26 Void Filling outside Culvert
Voids can develop due to piping, joint infiltration, and invert erosion Special Provisions specify lightweight cellular or rigid foam hydrophobic urethane grout

27 Other Culvert Repair Methods
Joint sealing with internal packers CMP seam repair Invert plating Sprayed coatings Slab jacking Compaction grouting Resetting and retying end sections

28 Other Important Features and Repairs
Energy dissipators Trash rack maintenance Inlet and outlet protection Aprons/cutoff walls

29 6. Replacement of Culvert Using Open Cut Methods
Drainage Manual Standard Specifications and Special Provisions Standard Plates Other MnDOT manuals

30 7. Replacement of Culvert Using Trenchless Methods
Conventional tunneling Pipe jacking Microtunneling Auger boring Pipe ramming Pipe bursting
