Project Spotlight: Clay County South Dakota Skewed Culvert & Headwall

By: TrueNorth Steel

Mother Nature was relentless on South Dakota in 2019, bringing rain at unprecedented levels throughout the year. That rain led to the washing out of an old multiplate structure on the Baptist Creek in Clay County South Dakota. TrueNorth Steel was asked to help expedite the production of twin 120″ x 86′ long 5 x 1 galvanized culverts with two 30 degree skewed headwalls. The system was made up of two, 43′ long pieces. The county chose CSP over other alternate products due to its ease of installation, fewer joints and the manufacturing period of the culvert was significantly shorter than concrete pipe or a precast concrete box culvert. Delivery and installation came off without a hitch and both the contractor and county were extremely pleased with the timeliness of the project from start to finish.
