TDOT State Route 218 Extension
Geotechnology is contracted with the Tennessee Department of Transportation to provide subsurface exploration for the 2.6 mile extension between SR 69 to SR 54 which will bypass Paris, Tennessee. The roadway section will consist of two traffic lanes within a 150 feet Right Of Way and a new bridge over the West Tennessee-Kentucky Railroad for which site specific seismic analysis is also being performed. To date Geotechnology has drilled approximately 4,400 feet using both hollow stem augers and mud rotary drilling methods. Sampling was performed using SPT and Shelby tube sampling methods. Laboratory testing is being performed by Geotechnology. The project is on budget and services are anticipated to be completed well within the allotted time frame.
