The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) knew that the big box culvert running under State Road 64, in Manatee County in downtown Bradenton, absolutely had to be replaced or rehabilitated — but how?

Repipe Texas, a national CIPP contractor, was working on such a project when they ran into a serious snag; after designing and installing a temporary bypass system involving six high-volume diesel pumps and four temporary lines, system engineers were surprised to discover that a critical concrete junction box was badly decomposed by microbiologically induc...
