701.11 CULVERT BEDDING Bedding material shall be provided and placed for the full width of the trench or, where the culvert is to be placed without trenching, to a width 0.8 m greater than the overall width of the culvert. This system is intended for pressure applications where the operating temperature will not exceed 140° F. Customers normally advise that trench bottoms should be excavated to provide a reasonably even bed along the pipe length and free of sharp stones or other objects that could damage the pipe. During filling, the maximum difference between filling placed on opposite sides of the culvert shall not exceed the lesser of onequarter the height of the culvert or 0.5 m. Filling shall not be placed within 2 m of an exposed culvert end where a further section is to be placed. The following drawing provides typical VDOT standards for pipe bedding and backfill. 701.18 REMOVAL OF EXISTING CULVERTS (a) General Where specified the Contractor shall remove culverts from existing paved areas. of 24" above crown of pipe. At least three inches (3”) of bedding material shall be placed beneath the pipe. Pipe Bedding Materials 2. Flush or butt joints shall only be used for the first pipe when extending existing pipes.
