Hubbard Construction – West Lake Eloise Drive
- Winter Haven, FL
Since its initial construction in the 1940s, this roadway had experienced continuous settlement with an estimated total settlement of more than four feet at the worst location. The settlement occurred due to organic sub-soils consisting of peat and muck. Permeable low-density cellular concrete (LDCC) presented a viable option that would decrease the weight placed on the underlying soils while also facilitating the elevation of the roadway and addressing the high water table present on both sides of the roadway.
CellFill installed 24 helical anchor piers to prevent upheaval of the material before placement of new roadway. The crew then pumped three-foot thick lifts over the course of two days for a total of 671 cubic yards of permeable fill.
