Two sites along a Provincial highway in southern British Columbia required excavation at the roadway’s edge to expose a gas pipeline 5 meters below the roadway elevation. Due to other utility conflicts, traditional soil nail shoring was not practical, and the time and budget constraints precluded the use of traditional piling or sheeting methods.
GeoStabilization International®’s engineers designed a reticulated micropile shoring system that could be installed rapidly at minimal cost. GeoStabilization’s crews shored both sites in less than 12 days, which kept the project on-schedule and on-budget.
A major roadway in California’s Bay Area presented a multitude of challenges to the state’s Department of Transportation where a large 140-linear foot portion of bluff supporting the roadway was simply sliding out to sea.
