Project Description

The design of a new bridge crossing the Pequea Creek in Lancaster, PA required the performance of test borings to assess the soil and rock conditions at the site.  Boring were performed on the roadway, on the streambanks, and in the creek at the proposed foundation areas.   CGC Geoservices mobilized a variety of rigs to complete the required work.   The work in tight access conditions along the streambank was performed using a track mounted drill rig that could traverse farm fields and steep slopes.   The work in the stream was performed using a CME 45 drill rig mounted on a pontoon barge that could float in the varying 2 to 4 feet of water flow in the stream.   The work was completed on time and within budget, in spite of being performed during the rainy spring season.
