Bridge Deck Grinding
Bridge grinding performed in the same direction that traffic travels has many advantages and one of those advantages is the quiet driving surface that is created. In addition to creating a very quiet riding surface, we also create a very smooth riding surface. As well the ground texture that is created by longitudinal grinding provides a very safe surface in all weather conditions. The ground surface also provides for better directional stability and improves nighttime illumination due to the lighter surface. In all aspects, a longitudinally ground bridge deck provides the safest, quietest, smooth riding surface possible. All of the positives created by grinding also extend the life of the bridge by many years.
Concrete Diamond Grinding
Diamond grinding is a pavement preservation technique that corrects a variety of surface imperfections on both concrete and asphalt pavements. Most often utilized on concrete pavement, diamond grinding is typically performed in conjunction with other concrete pavement preservation (CPP) techniques such as road slab stabilization, full- and partial-depth repair, dowel bar retrofit, cross stitching longitudinal cracks or joints and joint and crack resealing. Diamond grinding restores rideability by removing surface irregularities caused during construction or through repeated traffic loading over time. The immediate effect of diamond grinding is a significant improvement in the smoothness of a pavement. Another important effect of diamond grinding is the considerable increase in surface macrotexture and consequent improvement in skid resistance, noise reduction and safety.
Corrective (Bump) Grinding
We correct both concrete and asphalt pavement surface problems. This includes bridge decks or any other ride and /or skid problem you may have. Our equipment and experienced longtime employees can assure you that no job is too large or too complicated for us. It is not uncommon to complete difficult projects ahead of schedule.
