WITH MEASURABLE RESULTS
Twenty Seals Installed In Twin Culverts
HydraTite® (Internal Joint Seal System)
The challenge was to find an economical and efficient solution to eliminate joint separation and infiltration at the 60″ twin culverts.
To eliminate infiltration the HydraTite internal joint seal was proposed as a solution. The HydraTite is a repair product utilized with several DOT’S as a long-term repair solution.
This project consisted of installing (20) 60” HydraTite internal joint seals within the twin culverts under State Route 116 to eliminate infiltration and joint separation. Removal of debris and concrete prep work was required before installation. Installation was accomplished in only two days during the summer of 2017.
The crew and all materials entered through the open ends and there was no above-ground disruption to the traffic as the seals were installed. This trenchless repair was performed at a fraction of the price and inconvenience of full replacement. The finished product will prevent any further joint infiltration, separation, or sinkholes.
