Clearing Home -> Culvert
A culvert is a covered structure,
which conveys a flow under a road,
railroad or other obstruction as
well. Culverts are actually used
to divert steam or rainfall runoff
to prevent soil erosion or flooring
on highways. It is mainly used to
enclose a flowing body of water.
In other words it allows the water
to pass underneath a road, railway,
or embankment. Culverts installations
are very important mainly in Houston
Texas, it could be made of different
materials, steel, polyvinyl chloride
drainage pipes are the most
The process of culverts installation
is used to analyze the water flow.
Cbsexcavation culverts checks at
the entrance and exit of the flow
using empirical equations. We offer
all shaped culverts; rectangular,
circular, ellipse-shaped and arch-type
culverts, which may or may not be
submerged. We also perform road
Advantage of culvert
• It reduces the chance of
• It increase the traveling
• It extends life and reduces
maintenance operations and costs
• It smoother joints and reduction
in the number of potholes
• It preventive maintenance
work realizes or increases life
No matter what size culvert needed
for a project we can get whatever
the job requires. Pipe sizes can
range from 4", 12", 18",
24", 36" or 48" and
as large as 6'-12' feet in diameter.
When we install culverts we usually
cut the bottom of the ditch 6"
to 8" then place the culverts.
We then use select fill (sandy /
clay - the same dirt used for building
pads) around the culverts then place
concrete on top.
