GeoStabilization International® has transformed bridge construction with GSIBRIDGE™, bridge construction utilizing Geosynthetically Confined Soil™ (GCS™) services* that accelerates construction to a fraction of the time when compared to traditional construction methods. Once the existing superstructure is properly removed, new bridge abutments are constructed on each bank; often well away from the stream below. A prefabricated or constructed in-place bridge superstructure is then affixed to the abutments and the GSIBRIDGE™ is ready for traffic.
This approach saves huge sums of money, reduces fabrication time to a fraction, and avoids lengthy and uncertain permitting. Contact Mike Close, our Bridge Specialist, for more information. Let us show you how GeoStabilization can save you money and time.
