Culvert & Driveway Excavation

The Eastern Plains of Colorado are well-known for their heavy clay soil, which makes access to properties harder without a solid driveway. And every driveway needs a properly-installed culvert to divert water away from the road.

The government regulates driveways and culverts, so making sure they’re executed correctly is essential.

Whether you just bought land and need to create proper access to it, want to redo your current driveway, or need to install a culvert, we’re here to help.

An Up-To-Code Culvert

A culvert is an important structure to almost any property as it helps channel water under roads or driveways. 

Made out of metal, concrete, or corrugated plastic, culverts are basically pipes covered by an earth bridge. The size and length of your culvert varies based on the size of your driveway, the type of soil, and local regulations. 

Culverts also come in many shapes — you might see them shaped like a circle, arch, box or pipe — depending on how much water needs to pass through them. With the right slope and installation, your residential culvert can last for decades with minimal maintenance required.

Driveway & Culvert FAQ

Each type of driveway requires a different substrate, but in general, most driveways have a base of granite road base, gravel, or limestone. We’ll help determine what’s the best solution based on your property and traffic needs.

The government regulates and requests culverts if your driveway connects to the roadway. You’re also responsible for keeping your culverts free of silt, mud, debris, and ice.

The driveway cost in Colorado depends on a lot of factors, with the size and type of the driveway being one of the most important one. When designing your driveway, it’s important to consider your property’s future use. Do you want a simple stone-and-gravel driveway that’s easy to maintain, or do you need a solid one that can withstand more heavy traffic? Perhaps you’ll undergo commercial or agricultural activities or want a beautifully paved driveway.

All these factors will impact your driveway’s shape, form, foundation, and number of culverts needed. As a general rule, an asphalt driveway in Colorado goes between $4 and $7 per sq.ft., a gravel driveway around $2 per sq.ft., and a concrete driveway up to $8 per sq.ft.

Generally, yes, you will need a permit for building a driveway, however, there are differences in many Counties and Fire Districts that impact the permitting process.
