DVGI Nov. 2019 Dinner Mtg. "Design, Installation & Analysis of Column Supported Embankment Systems at I-295/I-76/Route 42 Direct Connection Contracts 1 & 2" (1 PDH)

Tuesday, November 19, 2019 - 5:30pm

This presentation will present the project background, site challenges, ground improvement design, analysis of load test data and quality control measures implemented on the I-295/I-76/Route 42 Direct Connection Project. Column supported embankments systems (CSES) were used to limit settlement and accelerate construction of large embankments bearing on compressible soils at the I-295/I-76/Route 42 Direct Connection project in Camden and Gloucester Counties in New Jersey. Due to the project size, traffic size, traffic flow, and safety concerns, expedited reconstruction of the existing roadway system is necessary and because of the soft soils present on site, the use of CSES allows for the schedule and performance criteria to be met. Due to traffic staging, the project has been split into multiple contracts, each of which contains various design areas.
