The ODOT Stone Arch Project included rehabilitation of eight stone arch culverts originally built in the mid-1800s as part of the Miami & Eire Canal. Miller Bros. set up and maintained cofferdams and bypass flume pipes at eight separate locations to allow access to the work areas, and they removed and reconstructed the existing stone block headwalls and wingwalls. They replaced damaged stone blocks with limestone replacement blocks or precast concrete blocks and installed wire mechanically stabilized earth walls behind the reconstructed block headwalls and wingwalls to relieve earth pressure from the newly reconstructed block walls. Some locations required temporary excavation shoring due to the close proximity of existing roads and/or structures. This was done with soil nails and a reinforced shotcrete wall. Temporary shotcrete wall heights varied from 10 feet to 30 feet.

How HCSS Software assisted with this project
HeavyJob was a vital tool in keeping track of labor hours and equipment costs on this project, given the multiple work locations. In addition, at several locations differing site conditions were encountered that required the addition of new cost codes to allow crews to track their work on a T&M basis. Being able to go back and use the HeavyJob reports to aid in the creation of T&M submittals was a real time-saver.
