Concrete Cloth Culvert Lining

Sterling Heights, MI
Concrete Cloth™: Culvert Outlet Washout Repair

Project Overview 

Water from a drainage tile and a culvert created a deep scour hole on the face of a 3 on 1 slope in the median of M-53 between the two bridges over the Clinton River in Sterling Heights, Michigan. The nearby maintenance garage believed that water leaking from the drainage tile near the top of the slope started the erosion. The erosion proceeded down toward the culvert, which was buried deeper down the slope.

The Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) decided to use Concrete Cloth CC8 to repair the site by creating a small chute. This spillway would channel water to the bottom of the slope, where a pile of riprap would slow the water flow and reduce further erosion.
