DOMINION VIRGINIA POWER
James River Foundation Repairs Project, Phase 2
Newport News, VA
Contract Value: $849,500
Duration: 7 Months
Project Manager(s): Brian Magee
Phase 2 of this project consists of performing structural repairs to nine (9) structures – 214/29 though 214/37. There are a total of twelve (12) H-piles per structure. The steel H-piles for these structures have experienced severe corrosion and section loss in the vicinity of the pile-concrete cap interface. This area was previously protected with an epoxy splash zone compound, which has deteriorated to a point that it no longer is functioning as intended. All piles supporting these foundations are assumed to need a section replaced within the zone between the existing fiberglass jacket and a short distance into the bottom of the concrete cap.
