ICE® I-12 Diesel Impact helping to build the Marsh Road Bridge

Innovation outweighs Tribulation

Editor: Ashley Steele

The replacement of the southbound lanes of the Marsh Road Bridge
 is no easy task. In Bealeton, Virginia the Marsh Road Bridge is under a strict deadline and not even the weather wants to cooperate.  Caton Construction Group Inc. was up for this challenge.  This innovative team was awarded a $5 million dollar contract. The only catches were the new lanes had to be complete in about 18 months and they had to keep at least one southbound lane of traffic open during the entire project.

In addition to these 
stringent guidelines, Caton Construction Group Inc. also had to maneuver around operating train tracks, making workable space incredibly limited. To complete the foundation work needed for the bridge lane expansion, Caton sought out the lightest, yet most powerful diesel hammer in the USA. This team decided to use the ICE® I-12 Diesel Impact Hammer with a hydraulic start. This configuration enables the contractor to free-hang in an arrangement like what is used in the ICE® off-shore pile driving solutions. ICE® was the only manufacture that could provide such a lightweight impact hammer with a hydraulic trip for this application.

Congratulations to Caton Construction Group, Inc on their innovative ways to pile driving. 
ICE® ithankful for the opportunity to provide this lightweight and effective solution to help this job stay on track for an on-time completion.
