U.S. seeks esplanade repair at Cape Fear Lock & Dam 1

WILMINGTON, N.C., U.S. 7/6/12 (PennWell) — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers seeks bids to repair the concrete esplanade at Lock & Dam 1 on the Cape Fear River in North Carolina. Bids are due July 26.

Lock & Dam 1 is the first of three locks and dams that form the Cape Fear River navigation system. The Corps’ Wilmington District said the Lock & Dam 1 esplanade has advanced settling at the downstream end.

In a solicitation set aside for service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, the Corps said work includes demolition of two 6-inch concrete slabs, each of which is about 1,885 square yards. One slab is buried about 3 feet below the surface slab. Other demolition includes a concrete deadman that supports the esplanade wing walls.

Repairs to the lock wall are to include removing the toe drain, point grouting and grout injection of cracks, waterproofing with spray-on membrane, and installing a sheet drain and new toe drain collection system. The new esplanade surface will be asphalt pavement including new storm water collection drain basins and pipe.

The work is valued at $500,000 to $1 million and is to require 420 days.
