DUST DOWN, TOURISM UP IN BLACK HILLS, THANKS TO PRE-BID PRECAST CULVERT

Ordering precast box sections for culvert construction in Hill City, South Dakota, was the difference between a smooth construction schedule and a construction nightmare. This article explains how the prepurchase of precast concrete culverts minimized traffic delays and danger and expedited construction of a culvert in a heavily travelled tourist area. Preempting the bidding process by direct ordering gave contractors design, fabrication, and installation time before winter. At the time of contract award, the 11 precast box sections were available and installation was completed 7 days after startup.
