Culvert Repair

At Grounds One of Toledo, we’re proud to take care of our underground infrastructure. Today, we’re taking a look into the world of culvert repair, which is crucial for keeping our roads and waterways safe. As experts, we know how important it is to keep these channels in good working order. This helps storm water flow smoothly, prevents floods, and keeps our roads safe. Come along with us as we look at how we fix culverts and the important role our skilled team plays in making sure these important passages stay clear and strong.

Understanding Culverts

Culverts are designed to quietly let water pass under roads, railways, and bridges. The job they do stops erosion, keeps things strong, and makes sure our roads and safety stay intact. But, over time, these important culvert structures begin to wear out, and that’s where we step in.

There are various types of culverts, each serving different specific purposes. Common types include box culverts, which are rectangular or square in shape and suitable for handling large amounts of water. Pipe culverts, on the other hand, consist of round pipes and are often used for smaller water passages. Arch culverts feature a semi-circular design, providing excellent structural strength and a nice look. Additionally, slab culverts are flat, resembling a bridge, and are often used in areas with moderate water flow.

Our experienced team uses modern technology like special cameras and drones to find even the smallest problems. Whether it’s erosion, clogs, rust, or things just falling apart, our experts look at every detail that may impede its total flow capacity.
