Saratoga Bridge

The Saratoga Creek Bridge, built in 1902, was at the time of construction, the longest bridge in the state.

To retrofit this historically significant bridge, the State called in West Coast Drilling to thread 30" & 36" CIDH piles through the existing foundation and into bedrock. The piling work involved coring through 21' of existing concrete, casing through native boulders & cobbles, and drilling a rock socket below. The piles required 50' of permanent casing, which was extended to 60' to insure shaft stability. Despite the challenging geotechnical conditions and extremely tight access, WCD brought the project in on budget and ahead of schedule.
