This report documents the installation and performance of corrugated smooth lined polyethylene pipe installed during construction of South Forbes Road in Fayette County, KY 54 in Daviess County, US 62 in McCracken County, Nicholasville Road in Fayette County, US 68/KY 80 in Warren County, KY 127 in Franklin County, US 62 in Hardin County, Donaldson Road and KY 236 in Kenton County, KY 17 in Kenton County, and Anderson Road in Kenton County. The majority of the pipe installed was N-12 pipe manufactured by Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc., and is designated as ADS N-12. ADS N-12 is a corrugated high-density polyethylene (HOPE) pipe. The pipe has a corrugated exterior for increased strength and a smooth interior to provide maximum flow capacity. A similar product, Hi-Q manufactured by Hancor, was also installed on portions of the project on Anderson Road.
This report makes recommendation on the usage of polyethylene pipe in Kentucky.
