What We Provide:
ABC Soils can assist with your bridge inspection. Bridge foundations are usually inaccessible by traditional excavation, but as they age, inspections are required to assess their condition, and vacuum excavation is the most effective way to expose key elements. We have a variety of mobile vacuum excavation equipment to locate specific buried structures, uncover areas of interest for inspection, and create enough space to work safely. We can provide professional, reliable service all over New England. Call 781-577-2770 today for a quote.
Example Project: I-95 Overpass, Branford, CT
ABC Soils provided bridge inspection support for an engineering company at a U.S. Route 1 underpass on Interstate 95 in Branford, CT. Our task was to excavate down along the north wall of the concrete bridge abutment and underneath it to locate the steel pile there that was driven to support the bridge. We opened a hole large enough for the inspector to enter safely, and gave him enough room to examine the condition of the steel as needed. When the inspection was complete, we backfilled the excavation with flowable fill. We finished the job on time and within budget. Since then, the road underneath the bridge has been widened as a result of the completed inspection.
