San Bruno Bridge Canal Replacement

Project Location: South San Francisco CA
Project Manager:  Mike Caruso
Superintendent – Rick Reyna

The San Bruno Canal Bridge was originally planned as a multi year project but had to be shut down for emergency replacement as construction was about to begin.  The bridge schedule was accelerated into 4 months and crews worked 12 hour shifts 7 days a week.

The deep foundation for this bridge consisted of 16″x 0.500 wall in 80′ sections, Class 200 piles.  Each side of the bridge presented unique challenges. On the North Side, overhead wires limited access and the piles need to be driven using low overhead equipment with a hydraulic hammer.

Key Equipment:

Low – Overhead Pile Rig with Hydraulic Hammer
