Drainage and stormwater management is a key element to any construction project but they’re especially important for roads and highways. At M.E. Collins we can manage any project from smaller pipe culverts to large-volume concrete box culverts. With the variability of the weather here in the midwest you need to make sure that your water management infrastructure is up to the task.
