The new ADOT Hydraulics manual has a bullet that states that the use of arch or oval shapes is only allowed if required by hydraulic limitations, site characteristics, structural criteria or regulatory requirements.
Does anybody know why this is the case? I've seen quotes from contractors with pre-made form systems for concrete arch culverts that were quite competitive.
