Pavement Structure Evaluation of 290 Miles of Pavement Along George Parks Highway

In 2012, Infrasense, Inc.  completed a subsurface pavement thickness survey of 290 lane miles of the Parks Highway between Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska using ground penetrating radar (GPR). The thickness investigation employed the use of two different frequency antennas, designed to achieve the optimum tradeoff between resolution and depth of penetration. The objective of the…

GPR Condition Surveys of Connecticut Highway Bridge Decks

Infrasense performed high speed scanning on major highway bridges throughout Connecticut, including the Arrigoni Bridge in Middletown, the Sisson Avenue interchange on I-84 in West Hartford, and the complex “Waterbury Stacks” on I-84 in Waterbury. Combined, these projects represent over 1-million square feet of bridge deck. Infrasense collected ground penetrating radar (GPR) data on these…

GPR and FWD Survey of Composite Pavement in CT Route 2 in Hartford, Connecticut

In 2015, Infrasense carried out a pavement evaluation program for a ~2.8 mile section of Route 2 in East Hartford, Connecticut using a combination of ground penetrating radar (GPR), falling weight deflectometer (FWD), and selective coring. The objectives of this program were as follows: Confirm limits of full-depth asphalt and the composite sections of pavement…

Nondestructive Evaluation of 14 Bridge Decks in Florida

Infrasense teamed with RS&H to complete a multi-phase project in the Jacksonville area to evaluate the condition of 14 bridge decks. The first phase of the deck condition evaluations was carried out using infrared thermography (IR), ground penetrating radar (GPR), and high resolution video imaging. A second phase, consisting of impact echo (IE) and hammer…

Condition Evaluation of the Silliman Evans Bridge in Nashville, TN

Infrasense recently completed deterioration mapping for two mainline bridge decks and six adjacent ramp decks, representing over 100,000 square feet. The Silliman Evans Bridges carry Interstate 24 over the Cumberland River, just north of the I-24/I-40 interchange. The deterioration mapping was performed using vehicle-mounted high-speed ground penetrating radar (GPR) to scan each bridge deck without…

Condition Assessment of 181 Bridge Decks in Minnesota’s Metro, Southeast, and Northeast Regions

Infrasense has surveyed 181 decks throughout Minnesota’s Metro district and Districts 1 and 6 using Infrared Thermography (IR) and Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), accompanied by underside visual inspections. GPR data was carried out at highway speeds with no disruption to traffic, and IR data was collected using a rolling lane closure. All traffic control was…

Multi-Phase Condition Evaluation of a 1.5-Mile Viaduct on I-515 in Las Vegas

The State of Nevada commissioned a deck rehabilitation project of the “Downtown Las Vegas Viaduct”, which spans over 1.5 miles of I-515, beginning just east of the I-15 interchange in Las Vegas, Nevada. In order to facilitate planning and subsequent design efforts, a comprehensive nondestructive evaluation of the deck condition was carried out by Stantec…
