- Description of Project:
On this project, Sukut is constructing approximately 6,000 linear feet of underground reinforced concrete pipe storm drain ranging in sizes from 18 to 108 inches and a six-acre detention basin with 220,000 cubic yards of export. The storm drain line will require the construction of numerous concrete structures, including manholes, drop inlets, catch basins, junction structures, outlet structures, and retaining walls. A portion of the line will be under the existing roadway, so removing and replacing existing asphalt paving will also be required, along with any necessary traffic control. Sukut will also excavate rock in some areas using mechanical ripping and breaking before the storm drain line and detention basin construction.
