This is a great 5-minute video put together by Terracon to showcase a project for the Missouri DOT, the replacement of the Hurricane Deck Bridge at the Lake of the Ozarks. The design team was focusing on the possible re-use of the foundations, so Terracon employed their own geotechnical engineer divers for the work.

Nicholson Completes Emergency Response Grouting Operation on Major Missouri Interstate with Minimal Traffic Impact
Pittsburgh, PA – June 2, 2011 – Missouri’s Interstate 44 is considered one of the most frequently traveled highways in the central United States. In early March of 2011, Nicholson Construction was contacted to perform an emergency response grouting operation on the Gasconade Bridge, part of I-44 westbound, over the Gasconade River in Laclede County.
During construction of the drilled shaft foundations for Temporary Bent No. 6, it was determined that voids were present both beneath and adjacent to the north footing for Intermediate Bent No. 6. Test borings by MoDOT indicated that the void varied in depth from zero to five feet, but the horizontal extents were unknown upon Nicholson’s arrival to the site.
