road estimate road estimate trivedi123 (Structural) (OP) 19 Jan 18 14:25 I am not a civil engineer and need some help in cost. Is there any way we can estimate the 24' wide street with 24" dia. culvert pipe/mile? Appreciate any help. Thanks RE: road estimate gbam (Civil/Environmental) 19 Jan 18 15:11 Not sure what you mean by estimate. Are you referring to cost to construct, design or size a culvert? RE: road estimate oldestguy (Geotechnical) 19 Jan 18 15:16 I suggest asking your community, county. etc. public works department for a rough cost by some unit that is convenient for them for street about as much traffic as you plan. If you happen to be one of them, next bet is a local road building contractor. Let them know you may want to negotiate a job sometime. Heavy traffic takes thicker pavement than a less used street. For any job like this you need plans and a detailed contract. That's where the CE comes in. RE: road estimate trivedi123 (Structural) (OP) 19 Jan 18 16:04 Sorry, It is cost estimate to construct. Thanks RE: road estimate trivedi123 (Structural) (OP) 19 Jan 18 16:08 The new street/road connects to existing road and will be about less than mile long. has drain in the middle so need pipe culvert for drainage RE: road estimate gbam (Civil/Environmental) 19 Jan 18 18:34 If you have a listing of Quantities you can use a source like RS Means for your area. The link below is another source for major construction activities. Hope these help. http://www.get-a-quote.net/QuoteEngine/costbook.as...

Cost per miles not only depends on product cost but also on excavation including blasting if necessary and dewatering, refill, manpower, equipment usage, purchase of project plans, insurance, bidding, and possibly potential delays such as interruptions from OSHA, jurisdiction and insurance engineers and potential accidents.
