Title: Drilled Shaft Designs for Sound Barrier Walls, Signs, and Signals PDF
Url: http://www.coloradodot.info/library
Publisher: Colorado. Dept. of Transportation
Description: Over much of the state, Colorado surficial and shallow soils and bedrock are highly variable due to repeated episodes of mountain building, subsidence, igneous intrusion and extrusion, and glaciation. Within many provinces or trends, however, soil and bedrock character vary within definable limits due to similar geologic history, thus allowing for generalizations of their geotechnical properties. Emphasis in this report is on soil and bedrock conditions likely to affect structures rather than total geologic aspects.This study concentrates on shallow subsurface conditions of soil and bedrock usually encountered for sound barrier walls, overhead signs, and similar structures along the Urban Front Range Corridor (the Corridor). For our purposes, the Corridor is defined bya combination of geologic/geomorphic and population/transportation factors. From west to east, it covers the far eastern portion of the Rocky Mountains Front Range, the Frontal Hogback, and the valleys and uplands divisions of the Great Plains Western Piedmont Sub-Province. It extends from approximately Fort Collins on the north, including the Greeley area, to Pueblo on the south, thus capturing the Stateļ¾’s dominant population centers along Interstate 25. An outline of the statewide geological environment is also presented including a brief overview of soil and bedrock conditions along other (non-Front Range) important highway corridors.
