Partially Grouted Revetment for Low Volume Road Bridges, TR-710

There are a large number of scour susceptible bridges or bridges with unknown foundations on the Iowa secondary road system. These structures are commonly required to (1) have a Plan of Action (POA) developed and implemented which will close the structure during flood events or (2) have countermeasures installed which will allow the bridge to remain open during the event (in the case of unknown foundations, countermeasures must be installed). Not surprisingly, installing the needed countermeasures can be a very costly endeavor. This is especially concerning given the fact that county budgets are already tight. Thus, there is a need to investigate various countermeasure options that are both affordable and effective. Among the many different countermeasures available, is a potentially viable technique known as partially grouted-revetment. Partially grouted revetment has been successfully used in Europe and more recently in Minnesota.
