PTC Mine Grout

  • Location: Irwin, Westmoreland County, PA
  • Owner: PA Turnpike Commission
  • General Contractor: New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co., Inc.
  • Estimated Value: $2M
  • Completion Date: December 2010

As part of the third lane expansion of the Pennsylvania Turnpike from MP 67.59-MP 74.59, Brayman performed 30,000-ft of drilling and onsite batching of 16,000-cy of grout to stabilize an abandoned coal mine adjacent to the roadway.  Utilizing an Elkins (now Cemen Tech) volumetric batch plant, a flyash/cement/sand mixture was batched and subsequently pumped 1,500-ft away to grout injection holes, eliminating the need to transport grout with ready-mix trucks.
