Interest grows for bottomless structures for forestry stream crossings
Super-Cor Box Culverts have become the go-to structure for new and replacement bridges in the forests of Eastern Canada. Forestry companies requiring a wide-span, low-rise bridge find Super-Cor Box Culverts to be economical alternatives to conventional bridges, especially when it is desirable to maintain a two-lane roadway at the stream crossing.
Sticking with a winner
Bowater has a number of Super-Cor Box Culverts in their forestry road network. One such installation is at Pont de la Branche de l’est in the Gaspé region of Quebec. The SC-54B structure has a 12.3 m span with a 2.7 m rise. It was installed in July 2000 and is designed to carry L-125 live loading. Bowater chose YDL Maintenance to do the installation, as they have become an experienced installer of Super-Cor structures.
