Sabine Causeway Bridge demo, Hwy 82 Port Arthur Texas.
Coastal Pile Cutters International, LLC., was contracted by Austin Bridge & Road to cut the 54 inch diameter concrete piling supports as part of removing the old bridge structure. Each bent pile cap was cut at the water line and removed. Coastal then deployed their hydraulic shearer to the base of the piling and made a 90 second cut at mud line to remove the remaining piling at each bent.
There were 130 total cuts made on the 54 inch pilings. Additional cuts were also made with Coastal's smaller cutter to remove 100 wood pilings that formed the entrance and exit to the main channel.
