Sandia Lakes Vehicle Bridge

New Mexico

  • Project Type: New Construction

  • Division: Commercial, Infrastructure

  • Service: Helical & Resistance Piers

In order to construct a solid foundation in silty alluvial sands below the water table in the Rio Grande valley, Straight Line installed a helical pier deep foundation to support bridge abutments for a new vehicle bridge at the Sandia Lakes Recreation Area at the Sandia Pueblo, north of Albuquerque.

  • At each abutment, 15 piers were installed and rebar tie-ins were welded as a cap on each pier.

  • Piers were 2-7/8in diameter, with 8in, 10in and 12in helices.

  • Triple helix specified to develop torque (and bearing capacity) more quickly in the soft, wet sands of the valley.
