Gallagher Intersection Improvements

The Gallagher Intersection Improvements project was primarily road widening an upgrading to traffic signals, however the underlying peat made it very complex.  1428 timber piles were used as the ground improvement methodology, with a load transfer platform constructed from layers of Geofabric, Geogrid and AP40.  Water infrastructure was upgraded as part of the project also, while all other service providers were given the opportunity to re-route cables away from the intersection.

The piling methodology was chosen due to time constraints, all the while State Highway 1 Traffic was not impacted.
