Precon wins Chesapeake Bay repair contract
The Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel Commission has awarded Precon Construction a US$12.5 million project to carry out substructure repairs to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel. Maintenance and structural repairs will be carried out above and below water on more than 600 concrete cylinder piles. There will also be maintenance repairs on some concrete pile caps. Additional work will include the installation of fibreglass cathodic protection jackets around some of the piles and the application of a protective coating to the exposed portions of some non-jacketed piles and pile caps.
