Case Study: The Cynthiana Bridge Repair

The Problem

The bridge installer contacted this foundation repair company about a year after the bridge was constructed in 2011. According to the State of Kentucky, it was originally built to make vast improvements to the infrastructure of Harrison County. This new bridge was intended to replace an old, substandard one with restrictions on the weight it could handle. Officials believed the replacement would afford safer passage and promote smoother traffic flow.

However, in 2012, The Dwyer Company was contacted to fix a problem with the Cynthiana Bridge. It appeared the approach slabs on each abutment had settled more than four inches in the span of just one year. This could lead to dangerous foundational problems, as the settling could cause significant risks to travelers using the bridge. Thankfully, these experts were happy to step in and fix the issue.

The Solution
