Bonner Bridge Replacement Project-Pile Driving Experience

The Bonner bridge replacement project is a 2.7 mi bridge over the Oregon Inlet on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. The new bridge will replace the existing Bonner bridge built in 1963. The existing bridge has experienced multiple storm, scour, and ship impact events which have resulted in numerous bridge closures and underpinning of some foundation piles. The new bridge foundations consist of three pile types: 36-in. square precast, pre-stressed concrete with a 21-in. diameter void, 54-in. diameter cylinder piles, and 20-in. square precast, pre-stressed concrete. This paper will describe the methods selected for production pile installation and the successes/problems encountered with the planned methods. Results from the static load testing and PDA testing results will also be discussed in detail.
