~ The Geotechnical Unit noted that steeper slopes between the end bents for structures #2 and #3and the MSE walls would have reduced the surface area of MSE wall.
~ It was suggested that driving piles for future widening was preferred over the hollow pipe blockout typically used.
~ Underside of top flange of bulb-tee girders spalled when drilling holes for overhang falsework hangers. It was suggested that forming the holes with PVC pipe may be preferable.
A/I ~ Structure Design will bring up the holes for overhang falsework hangers issue for discussion at the next PCI-DOT Joint Committee meeting.
