Spillway Bridge Grouting

Toano, Virginia

Bridge Spillway Featured

The Job

This spillway bridge grouting project is located in Toano, Virginia. Toano is between Williamsburg and Richmond. Two DOT-maintained bridges crossing two privately owned dam spillways had to be closed because of extensive undermining of the spillways.

The undermining was allowing nearly all of the flow to happen below the spillway slabs. This caused large sinkholes to form adjacent to and under the roadway pavement. It also led to some settlement of the spillway slabs.

The Challenge

There was very little room to work–just under 4′ of clearance below the bridge beams. Also, the velocity of the water through the voids below the structure was quite high.

The Solution

CJGeo proposed a combination of plural component polyurethane grouting to address the water flows and voids, and hydrophobic chemical grout placed directly into cracks. A single CJGeo grouting crew was able to complete the repairs in a day (roughly 2500sqft of work, and approximately 4500lbs of CJGrout 35NHV61 polyurethane, plus 30 gallons of hydrophobic chemical grout). Dye testing during and after the grouting work confirmed that no more leaks were present under or around the spillway structures.
