Bridge Abutment and Approach Backfill

CEMATRIX Cellular concrete:

  • provides cost-effective solutions.
  • accelerates construction schedules.
  • reduces on site work force requirements.
  • provides a lightweight, monolithic material when used as backfill over soft compressible soils; reducing vertical and lateral load.
  • enables innovative methods of building retaining walls and raised grade structures over soft soils; lessening the need of extensive piling, cantilever walls, or surcharging.
  • used in combination with MSE wall panel systems, can offer several advantages over “standard” construction practices; especially when traffic interchanges require smaller “footprints” in confined areas.
