ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study on a rehabilitation project of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) on a section of I-99 road through Bedford and Blair counties. It is stated that the road was found to have 25,000 feet of deteriorated metal pipes in failure in dozens of culverts. PennDOT chose to use the Snap-Tite Culvert Lining System which uses high-density polyethylene pipe (HDPE) with a patented joining system.
