Culvert Repair Best Practices, Specifications, and Special Provisions: Task C Research Synthesis

This document contains the results of Task C, Research Synthesis, for the Culvert Repair Best Practices, Specifications and Special Provisions Guidelines Project. These guidelines will provide guidance to Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) engineers in making better decisions on culvert repairs. New materials specifications and special provisions will ensure adherence to standardized practices and increase the effectiveness and longevity of repairs. Focus will be on repair of centerline culverts of 24-inches to 72-inches in diameter. This synthesis describes in detail the results of the following tasks: 1. Online Surveys - These were online base surveys, conducted in Tasks A and B using SurveyMonkeyTM online survey software; 2. Interviews - Phone interviews were conducted in Tasks A and B; and 3. Literature, Specifications, Drawings, and Cost Information Review - Literature related to culvert repair was collected before and during previous tasks, literature was requested during the online surveys and interviews, and additional literature was collected from sources provided by MnDOT and CNA Consulting Engineers.
