A major trip hazard appeared along the sidewalks and curbing, of the Linglestown, PA Weis Market Grocery store. About 70 sections of sidewalk, representing approximately 210 linear feet, were affected—with some settling as much as 3.5 inches. Additionally, there was a metal railing that had been attached to the sidewalk when the sidewalk was poured.
Voids around a St. Louis manhole and stormwater pipe joint were severely leaking, causing significant inflow & infiltration issues for the city. After viewing camera footage provided by the Metropolitan Sewer District of St. Louis, it was observed that the I&I was occurring through specific joints from the manhole and lateral pipes.
In order to minimize the impact on drivers, the test project was completed in the late evenings when it was more convenient for the highway to shut down temporarily. The URETEK technicians injected above and in between the concrete beams on 4 joints in a section that went over a pedestrian walkway. The 5th joint was left alone in order to test if URETEK’s solutions were successful. URETEK completed void filling and sealing the 4 joints successfully.
URETEK’s technicians effectively utilized the URETEK Deep Injection® Process across affected Horse Mesa Dam access road. The process effectively and quickly filled existing voids, consolidated weak soil with existing aggregates, stemmed potential water flow that would lead to further erosion and increased the soil load-bearing capacity in the area of concern.
Due to the constant truck and automobile traffic and the need to keep the business open to customers without interruption a non-disruptive, fast, effective and proven solution was needed. The URETEK Method® Process and URETEK Polymer Products were used to cost effectively fill voids, push out existing trapped water beneath panels, lift concrete panels back to grade and specification and generally restore appearance and safety while reducing the need to replace panels.
