A new four-lane highway was constructed to connect Meyersdale, PA to Somerset, PA. McCrossin Foundations was subcontracted to install 16 caissons at the Buffalo Creek bridge location. The caissons are 84 inches in diameter with depths in excess of 55 feet and filled with self-consolidating concrete. Permanent casing was used in the construction of the caissons and once completed, CSL and TIP testing were used for quality control measures. Caisson installation took place in limited access and required close coordination with the General Contractor for successful completion of the work.
