Long Grove Nature Preserve Bridge Repair

January 9th, 2018  /  Project Profile

Problem:

The Long Grove IL Nature Preserve had a unique problem.  Deep inside the beautiful forest sits a small bridge.  The concrete approach that connects the bridge deck to the ground sunk.  Because of its location, replacement was not a viable option since getting heavy equipment and concrete deep into the woods would not only be expensive but would also disrupt the native surroundings.

Solution:

Polyurethane slabjacking to the rescue!  Our polyjacking services was the perfect repair solution.  We carefully parked our rig as close as we can and ran our hose for the rest of way.  In less than an half hour we had the bridge approach back to being level with the deck by injecting polyurethane through two small holes which raised the concrete and filled the open void below the slab.   Bridge is fixed, man and mother nature are happy.
