Reinforced Concrete Box (RCB) Culverts

Wichita Concrete Pipe, Inc. & McPherson Concrete Products, Inc.Economical & Efficient Precast RCB Culverts

Our precast box culverts are a labor-saving alternative to cast-in-place. They can solve many space restriction challenges with shallow yet wide conduits to handle required flows. RCB culverts may also serve when circular culverts or elliptical pipe can’t meet flow capacity requirements. You can trust our decades of experience with underground utilities for RCB culverts that meet your specifications.
