Bridge foundations are a perfect application for helical piers. Conditions around locations where bridges are needed tend to be challenging, and are often undeveloped, wet, and difficult to access. Since helical piers can be installed using a boom arm from up to 40' away access problems to installation locations are minimized. Equipment necessary for installing piers can also be managed from boats, allowing further flexibility. And because helical piers excel in providing support in wet and even underwater locations, bridges are an ideal application for their use.
Intermountain Helical Piers has installed helical piers for a variety of bridges for railroads, highways, golf courses, & environmentally sensitive walkways. See the case studies for more information.
