Careful Coordination in Active Parking Lot

Compaction Grouting /

The traditional sinkhole repair undertaken using standard excavation and backfill methods exemplified a pragmatic approach to mitigating the impact of active, non-structural sinkholes. Coordinating closely with the owner was imperative, given that the site served as an active parking lot. This coordination ensured minimal disruption to daily operations while effectively addressing the sinkhole concerns. By strategically scheduling the repair work during off-peak hours and sectioning off designated areas for excavation, the repair crew could efficiently carry out the necessary tasks without impeding the flow of traffic or compromising safety.

The excavation process involved carefully removing the compromised soil within the sinkhole area and assessing the underlying causes contributing to the sinkhole formation. Once the affected area was excavated to the desired depth, backfilling commenced, utilizing suitable materials to restore stability and prevent further subsidence. This method not only addressed the immediate sinkhole hazard but also reinforced the ground support system, reducing the likelihood of future sinkhole occurrences. Throughout the repair process, meticulous attention was paid to ensuring the structural integrity of the parking lot surface, minimizing any disruptions to the owner’s operations, and ensuring the safety of both pedestrians and vehicles.
