Virginia Box Culvert

Location: Mount Jackson, VA

Contractor: Burleigh Construction Inc.

Engineer: Virginia Department of Transportation

Scope: The new replacement Precast Box Culvert bridge was set in place. The Fortec #5680-BD Kevlar is used as a waterproofing membrane for joints. Fortec Kevlar was wetted out in field with a 2-lift epoxy combined with #9 Basalt aggregate at every joint.

Conclusion: Virginia Dept. of Transportation has been using Fortec #5680-BD Kevlar for 10 yrs to waterproof joints in precast bridges. This is to make sure water and salts did not seep through joints to the steel cable reinforcements.
