Culvert installation costs??

Does anyone have a rough idea how much a 12 inch culvert would be to install. I bought some property up north and there is no access until I put one in. I found where I could buy the culvert and then rent a tractor. However, I really think I just want some else to do it and am looking for a guestimate for the great PPB.

Thanks,
Mike

Around here, the county will put it in for free. You set up an appt with them, supply the culvert, and they'll install it. If you have a pile of rock handy, they'll even drag a layer of the rock over it to help keep the dirt from washing off. You may want to try that.

County or state does it here. I believe it is required. Just lay the culvert out there and call them.

Shovel......



The county will not do it b/c the road to the property is privately held and maintained by the association.

Renting a back hoe is the option. The culvert is $200-250, backhoe rental is $300, then I need to drag it up to the land 2hrs away. install the culvert and then dump a couple tons on dirt on top. Not sure how much that would cost. There probably a backhoe operator that works out of a town that is close and that has install a culvert before.

Since I've never install one before and probalby will never need another one installed. I was wondering how much it might cost to get it done right the first time.

It will depend a lot on how deep your culvert needs to be. Here in Illinois for a normal 12" culvert to be installed the cost is around $14 per foot which includes the cost of the culvert. I would call the local excavator and get a price from them. YOu do want to make sure that the culvert you are having installed is properly sized and that the county or city will not require a permit for it.

Good Luck

As a rule, I don't use 12" because they are so likely to clog.
The minimum size I go with is 15".
I recently bought two 20' section of 15" HPDE corrugated culvert.
It cost $250 per joint IIRC.

Install costs you could figure $75 an hour for the equipment (locally) and mobilization costs (hourly rate from the time he leaves the shop until he gets back). Usually requires a 1/2 day minimum call out some require a full day. So either way, line up work to keep him busy for the time you are paying for. Excavators make great tree trimmers, they really reach those high limbs.

I would probably just do it myself and rent/borrow the equipment.
