~ Project utilized numerous drilled shafts.
~Drilled shaft lengths were reduced by utilizing the load cell test on a test pier.
~ A significant length of structure drainage system main trunk line had been installed and did not appear to be even half full during very heavy rain (estimated intensity of 2 in./hr.).
A/I ~ Geotechnical will investigate the feasibility of using load cells on drilled piers during the preconstruction stage. An upcoming project, R-3307, has been identified as suitable for this investigation.
