GeoStabilization International® has transformed bridge construction with Geosynthetically Confined Soil (GCS®) technology that allows for single-span bridge construction to happen in a fraction of the time when compared to traditional fabrication methods. Once the existing structure 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 deck 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 Bob Barrett, a GeoStabilization Founder and current Director of Innovation for more information. Let us show you how GeoStabilization can save you money and time!
