In February of 1998, the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet requested that the Kentucky Transportation Center investigate excessive deflection occurring in three aluminized Type 2 corrugated metal pipe culverts installed during the realigning and widening on KY 55. The pipes were initially inspected in February 1998. The embankments were only 50 percent completed and in several locations only one-half of the total length of the culvert had been installed, The scope of this project was increased after excessive deflections were observed in other structures throughout the project.
