Howard Frankland Bridge Pile Repair

Howard Frankland Bridge Pile Repair

April 2012 April2012 CEM EnterprisesHowFrankBridge2UESI crews utilized four vessels and two configurations of sectional barges to stage work to repair the pilings on the Howard Frankland Bridge across Tampa Bay. One hundred and thirty one pilings were repaired using stay in place fiberglass jackets and DOT approved grout or concrete pumped into place from ready mix trucks staged on the bridge deck once a week. Sixty seven of the piling repairs included a zinc cathodic protection system that UESI crews connected and had tested by a third party to ensure system functionality. One hundred and twelve of the pilings required reinforcing steel cages based on the condition of the existing pilings.
