Roadway Lifting for California, Nevada and Arizona

Our soil stabilization and roadway lifting and stabilization techniques save transportation departments millions of dollars and spares them weeks of operational downtime. 

ROADWAY LIFTING AND LEVELING

EagleLIFT Railroad Ballast RepairEagleLIFT has provided roadway lifting and stabilization services for municipalities and Department of Transportation ( DOT ) departments in California, Nevada and Arizona for the last 15 years.  We approach roadway repair through a unique approach for soil compaction and stabilization.

Poor base and subgrade soils can wreak havoc on a roadway, causing a variety of issues such as cracking, rutting and severe pavement settlement.  The root of the soil degradation could be caused by:

  • Improperly compacted soils under the roadway
  • Water infiltration through pavement cracks causing soil washout
  • Roadway widening that did not address soil conditions for new design
  • Heavier loads than originally design allowed for
  • Failing sewer systems underneath the pavement causing soil loss

We have helped innovate the URETEK Deep Injection® Process and the URETEK Method® for road leveling for a variety of pavement types, including both flexible pavement and rigid pavement.  We do this by densifying and compacting the base and subgrade support soils by injecting a high density, water resistant expansive structural polymer.

EXPECTED RESULTS

  • Compact the loose foundation soils without uneven lifting of the flexible pavement to provide sufficient support of the pavement surface.
  • Continued injection into the soils can lift the pavement system if needed.
  • Lifting of the rutting is NOT possible.
  • Surface cracks will still need to be sealed by traditional methods to mitigate water infiltration into the system.

BENEFITS

  • Zero daytime lane closures
  • Removal of good pavement and poor foundation soils is not required
  • Overlay to correct rutting can be performed immediately following the polymer injection into the soils.
  • Extends the life of a new overlay.
  • URETEK hydro-insensitive polymer will push out the water in wet soil conditions while still compacting and densifying the soil
