Project Details

Project consisted of auger cast-in-place pile near the pool to minimize vibration and noise to keep the pool operational during the entire project. This project also consisted of removal and installation of existing railroad tracks near Hormel  Drive.  Part of the project was to build 740 linear feet of concrete retaining wall set on driven sheet pile along with realignment of 15th Ave NE. Storm sewer pipe along with the installation of duck bills and stop logs are what made this project challenging and exciting to complete.
