Foundation Investigation for Proposed Bridge

On behalf of Alberta Transportation, EBA, A Tetra Tech Company is providing engineering services for a proposed new bridge structure crossing the Athabasca River on Highway 813. 

As part of the bridge planning, design and construction EBA will conduct a foundation investigation for the proposed pier locations.

A barge will be assembled next to the Town of Athabasca boat launch to act as a floating work platform for the foundation investigation. The barge will carry a drill rig to the proposed pier locations and core the subsurface soils to obtain data for pier foundations. The barge is expected to be on the river for 3 days and then disassembled at the boat launch on October 30.
