The pipe is 3/8" wall thickness. Not likely to bend. There will be posts at each side the the culvert. Does not mean they will look but you would think they would see a post.

It also depends on how far the culvert is setback from the edge of the road. The further back, it allows more time for wide vehicles to straighten before crossing the culvert.

No utility easement on the gravel road in front of his property so culvert is pretty close to the road. It will have posts to warn people.
