Precast Concrete Box Culvert

Barger And Sons manufactures a wide range of precast concrete box culvert to meet your project needs. Learn more about box culvert from reading below. Our box culvert product is ASTM C 1433 compliant to meet the most current industry requirements. Precast concrete box culverts have many uses including water retention, storm drainage, utility conduit, holding tanks, underpasses, service tunnels, outfalls, bridges, and more. See attached example cross-sectional drawing for typical box culvert design.

In October 2010, TDOT changed the current box culvert ASTM specification from ASTM C1433 to ASTM C1577.  If you are specifying precast box culvert, please take note of this change.  A summary of the two specifications follows.
 
ASTM C1433, “Standard Specification for Precast Reinforced Concrete Box Sections for Culverts, Storm Drains, and Sewers,” covers the box culvert used to carry water from streams under highways. This specification was written to replace ASTM C789 and ASTM C850. The design is based on the load factor method.
 
ASTM C1577, “Standard Specification for Precast Reinforced Concrete Box Sections for Culverts, Storm Drains, and Sewers Designed According to AASHTO RFD (Resistance Factor Design),” also covers the design of the box culvert. While results are similar to ASTM C1433, design is based on the recently introduced load and resistance provisions as given in AASHTO LRFD (Load and Resistance Factor Design) bridge design specifications.
 
Cooper E80 load rated box culvert also available.

Barger and Sons offers a standard box culvert design, but a custom design with additional features can be discussed to meet all of our customers’ needs.
