ACO Infrastructure is the world's most globally recognized trench drain system. This elite status makes it always the first choice for prestigious projects. The case studies below gives designers, engineers and contractors confidence in using the world's best trench drain.
Route 23, Ohio
Route 23, Ohio
Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) decided to provide a bypass on state Route 23 in Chillicothe Ohio to help alleviate the summer congestion caused by tourist traffic heading to the nearby state parks and camp grounds. A bypass was constructed around the town offering two lanes in each direction with less traffic lights to impede traffic flow. The road was constructed in a flat area and to assist with the minimal grading an ACO Infrastructure TraffikDrain TD100 was selected to run down the median. The excellent load performance of TraffikDrain, plus 60% grate intake, provided a solution where both withstand a variety of vehicle types running over the drain plus excellent hydraulics to evacuate the standing water.
TraffikDrain TD100 is unique in the market as the only continuously sloped modular trench drain manufactured in one piece offering 200 ft of continuously sloped trench.
County Line Road - Warminster Twp., PA
Due to the road grades, water was flowing into the road intersection and creating a hazard. A trench drain was required across the road uphill from the intersection to capture water running down the road.
As the trench drain would need to withstand frequent braking and accelerating, HighwayDrain was selected.
HighwayDrain's monolithic nature means there are no grates that could become loose due to these dynamic loadings.
Since installation, there have been no further hydroplaning problems at the intersection.
