LOCATION:

Hood Canal Bridge (Kitsap County, WA)

CHALLENGE:

Locate clear areas for more than 1,200 anchors for electrical conduit rack and clear locations for more than 850 cores for a new leak detection system.

SOLUTION:

Equipped with the latest Ground-Penetrating Radar technology, SRI technicians braved inclement weather to scan inside and underneath each of the bridge’s pontoons to identify rebar mats and other reinforcement spanning the entire bridge.

OUTCOME:

Using documentation provided by SRI, the customers efficiently verified the safe areas to avoid all critical items and successfully installed both the conduit rack and the leak detection system. The customer then also relied on SRI to assist with repairing and replacing several columns on a transported section of the bridge.
