Advanced Bridge Demolition
Whether a portion of a floor slab must be removed or a section of concrete wall, dock, or bridge deck must be cut out and repaired, selective demolition is an important capability.
Bridge Demolition Experts
Bridge demolition is often the first, and, in some ways, the most important part of any bridge construction project. As bridges are some of the more complex and unique structure built by mankind, their demolition is also very complex. Taking down a bridge often requires many different construction techniques and a great deal of engineering expertise. Bridges are made of many different components, and each may require a different type of demolition.
A single bridge demolition job may require several different types of concrete cutting and sawing. Different techniques may be required, for example, to remove portions of the deck, piers, and abutments. Concrete beams or steel beams may also require special considerations as demolition progresses. Many bridge foundations also utilize piles and other deep foundation systems, and piles may need to be pulled from the ground or cut below the surface. To further complicate things, many bridges remain open to a certain level of traffic during construction. All of the work must be completed on a tight schedule to avoid creating further delays to existing traffic.

Because bridge demolition jobs are extremely complex, the firm completing the job must have a rich and diverse background.

Every bridge is different, but Aggregate Technologies and its experienced team of contractors and engineers have the experience and know-how to bring it down safely and ahead of schedule.
Our nation’s infrastructure has never been more critical, and will continue to be a hot-button issue as the country moves forward. One of the primary areas of focus as we look to continually upgrade the national infrastructure is the bridges that help to carry the highway systems that connect America. Bridge demolition, construction, and rehabilitation will continue to be at the forefront as Congress continues to invest in the future infrastructure that will keep America running.
