Description / Significance

Sargent crews repaired six arch bridges in Acadia National Park.  The bridges were arch bridges with stonework that had degraded over the years.  Repairs included installation of a membrane liner system to ensure that water drained down the sides of the bridge, rather than infiltrate through the bridge structure causing damage.

Scope of work included:

  • 1,800 cubic yards of excavation
  • 1,300 cubic yards of gravel
  • 19,000 square feet of waterproof membrane and drainage geocomposite
  • 500 linear feet of gaurdrail
