Concrete Bridge Scanning for Rebar - St. Louis, MissouriConcrete Bridge Scanning for Rebar - St. Louis, Missouri

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. (GPRS) was contacted by a local contractor to perform a GPR scan at the Poplar Street Bridge in St. Louis. The contractor needed to locate rebar in pier 2 and 5 in order to anchor into each side without hitting any rebar, and they decided to call GPRS to scan the areas of concern the contractor indicated.

In order to reach the locations to perform the scan, we needed a boom lift, and this equipment was provided by the contractor. Once we had access to the areas of concern, using our 1600MHz antenna radar equipment, we were able to scan for rebar, conduit, and utility lines. As we scanned each area in a north/south east/west pattern, we marked the findings directly on the surface with a marker. The findings were labeled accordingly, and these results were explained clearly to the onsite contact, and GPRS was able to recommend the best path to drill in anchors safely.

To the right is a photo taken on-site which depicts Isaiah conducting the scan. Isaiah was on a boom lift that was provided and operated by the contractor. As you can see, Isaiah was wearing his safety harness and was tied off correctly in order to perform each scan. If you have a need for utility locating or concrete imaging prior to core drilling or saw cutting contact, Isaiah Runkle (314-412-9806) or Isaiah.runkle@gp-radar.com who works out of the St. Louis office and covers the greater St. Louis area. GPRS is your GPR resource, so feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns on current and future projects.
