BOX CULVERTS

Gillespie Precast manufactures four-sided and three-sided box culverts. Precast concrete box and 3-sided culverts are incredibly versatile. They can be manufactured in a wide range of sizes and configurations, and can be used to convey stormwater or wastewater, create short span-bridges and access ways, or for rainwater retention or detention, to name only a few applications. In addition, precast concrete 3-sided culverts allow for natural streambeds to remain intact.

Gillespie Precast has manufactured thousands of box culverts that are being using in Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, and our box culverts meet Maryland State Highway Administration (MDHSA), Delaware Department of Transportation (DELDOT), and National Concrete Product Association (NCPA) requirements for strength, durability, and specification adherence.
