North Littleville Road Culvert

of Avon, New York

Infrastructure Storm Damage Reconstruction with an Eye on Future Changing Weather Patterns

 

Avon CulvertLarsen Engineers assisted the Town of Avon, New York, in replacing a failed culvert over Little Conseus Creek damaged by Hurricane Agnes in 1972 and heavy rains.

 
This severe weather damage caused the collapse of the entire North wing wall. Larsen assembled a design team that developed a unique 16 feet wide by 11 feet high precast concrete arch culvert to replace the old structure. This structure will provide additional protection in the event of future unexpected severe storms such as Hurricane Sandy.
 
Bringing together the necessary team players at inception of project design enabled the project to be completed from the beginning of 2011 to September 2012. If this project were brought to bid, using traditional bidding,  it would have cost the Town of Avon $600,000 dollars. While implementing valued engineering the cost to the Town was $340,000; saving town taxpayers $260,000 dollars in design labor, material, and construction management.     
 
As the state prepares for future changes in weather patterns, Larsen Engineers stands ready to work with New York State and municipal leaders planning for a new frontier of Infrastructure Engineering which will help prevent and reduce structural damage, as well as economic and personal loss.
