Phoenix, AZ – EagleLIFT, Inc.’s, a foundation repair and sewer repair company based in Rancho Cucamonga, CA, URETEK Process was featured in a recent video by the Arizona Department of Transportation. The project was a roadway lifting project on the Loop 101 (Prima Freeway) widening project in Scottsdale, AZ.
The Loop 101 widening project is adding new outside lanes and roadway improvements between Shea Boulevard and Loop 202 in the Phoenix metropolitan area. EagleLIFT, with URETEK USA, utilized the patented URETEK Deep Injection® Process to help rehabilitate the existing roadway and lift any dips and fill voids where present.
“We understood the importance of this project to the Phoenix metropolitan area and the Arizona DOT,” states EagleLIFT President Donald Moody. “The URETEK Deep Injection® Process is one of the most effective processes for rehabilitating roadways. It allows you to quickly lift and stabilize the road without excavation and with minimal impact to the community.”
The URETEK Deep Injection® Process is a technique whereby an industrial grade structural polyurethane is injected to densify and stabilize the support soils underneath the roadway. The polyurethane is injected in a multiple depth and horizontal gridded pattern to fill voids and densify the soil. This process is used to increase the base soil’s weight-bearing capacity, as well as achieving upward lift for leveling the roadway or any effected structure.
In a press release from ADOT, Steve Boschen, Director of ADOT’s Infrastructure Delivery and Operations Division, stated that “This is certainly less disruptive than digging up the freeway to do reconstruction work. It is a high-tech fix when it comes to long-term ground settlement beneath a freeway. Expansion foam isn’t the answer in all cases, but we’ve had some great success in offsetting the effects of ground settlement.”
EagleLIFT won the Loop 101 soil stabilization portion of the project with URETEK USA (which EagleLIFT is the sole licensee in Arizona, California and Nevada) in a competitively bid award. More information about the Loop 101 improvements is available by visiting azdot.gov/Loop101.
