Pocono Lake

  • Site Overview
  • Icy Wire Saw

Clearwater replaced a decaying two-span bridge over Pocono Lake Preserve.  Due to a June 3rd NASCAR event at the Pocono Raceway, the June 1st Phase 1 completion date is of paramount importance.  The original plans called for the construction of a causeway for the demolition of the pier.  In order to expedite the demolition, Clearwater devised an innovative alternative that involved cutting the pier with a wire saw and removing the sections.  H-piles and pipe piles were installed and integral abutments will be constructed on the pile caps.  102’ bulb-tee beams will support a 40’ curb-to-curb concrete deck with a concrete parapet.  Project was completed in mid-October.
