I-77 Canton Bridge Structures

The large aquifer in Canton, OH presented multiple drilled shaft installation challenges on the I-77 mainline bridge structures. GRL Engineers were involved in mulitple phases of construction, providing a variety of testing services including Dynamic Load Testing with an APPLE drop weight system, CAPWAP® Analyses to simulate static load testing, Drilled Shaft Base Cleanliness Evaluations, Thermal Integrity Profiling, and Static Load Testing on CFA piles. The project was considered monumental as it was the Ohio DOT's first time utilizing Dynamic Load Testing on a CFA pile.
