Big R Bridge is proud to have been selected for the design and supply of MSE abutments for the Georgia Department of Transportation’s I-85 / Highway 400 connector in Atlanta. This was a critical project for the GDOT; prior to this, motorists had to use secondary roads to transition between these major highways, causing notorious traffic congestion and delays.
Big R walls are big in the southeast
Our Vist-A-Walls have been supporting larger interstate highway interchanges and upgrades in southeastern US for many years, but this was our first installation for the GDOT.
Flexibility is key in design-build projects
Typical of design-build projects, the design process was rather dynamic during the initial stages. The available plans at bid were not 100% and, through the early portions of the project, plan revisions were required to address unforeseen obstacles such as drainage and utilities. Our dedicated in-house engineering team and our Atlanta-based representative were able to respond quickly with creative solutions to keep the project on track.
In addition, our manufacturing resources were well-positioned with our precaster within one hour and our soil reinforcement facility within six hours.
Vist-A-Wall MSE Structural Wall Systems
These historically-proven, cost-effective systems from Big R Bridge have minimal equipment and labor requirements and are easy to install. They adapt well to curves, angles and steps, and some can reach heights of over 100′.
