When the pipes and culvert sections are placed in the yard for curing, Hanson pipe finishers and repair crews inspect them and make repairs as needed. The most common patches are made around the joints, where the pipes seat together, as these areas must be flat and smooth to achieve a proper seal. Products used include Cement All, Dark Concrete Additive, DOT Repair Mix, or Mortar Mix.
There are virtually no cracks in more than 420,000 ft2 (39,000 m2) of slab. Further, the concrete frame was bid and constructed under budget and completed 42 days ahead of schedule. Because the slab was originally bid with pour strips and then re-bid with shrinkage-compensating concrete (SCC) in place of the pour strips, the high quality and fast schedule were obtained with a net cost savings. Product used was Type K shrinkage-compensating cement.
