Waterworks operations will consist of driving 30″ voided pile up to 100 feet in length, weighing about 700 lbs. per foot, and cast-in-place seal slabs for Bents 4/5/6 that weigh approximately 117,000 lbs.in addition to a cast-in-place footing weighing a little over 800,000 lbs. The waterworks operation will also require a detailed work plan around a very aggressive tidal condition changing almost 8 feet in one work shift.
