Bridge Model

Culvert AlternativeThe culvert design is at the same location as the bridge. The reasons for designing it are:Providing an alternative to the bridgeComparing costs of more than one solutionExpanding the scope of the project to ensure it best suits the needs of the clienteleCulvert Design

April 6 storm event: Approximate 20 year, 2 hr. stormPeak DischargeDrainage area is 148.3 acres.SCS Method insists on 25 year return period.Rainfall depth is 4.45 inches for 25-yr stormPeak discharge:2-Yr Storm: 102 cubic feet per second25-Yr Storm: 276 cubic feet per second100-Yr Storm: 426 cubic feet per secondCulvert DesignHEC-RASMDNRE requirements 100 Yr Storm impactTwo box culverts12 x 6 at channel bottom6 x 3 on floodplain

Culvert Model

Path DesignThe paths must be ADA compliant. This means the design must have:The shallowest slope feasibleNo steeper than a 1:12 slopeLandings that are 60 clear every 30 of rise or 40 run (and 5x 5 for changes in direction)Railings

Path Design6 wideMinimize tree removalPossible expansion of landings for benchesRetaining structures1% slope across the path to allow for storm water runoffPath Design
