Concrete Pilings


Your leaving out some important information. These are very important as they will dictate the proper methods to use.

1 - is this bridge supporting only people or vehicles? This is huge because it means the difference between 6" pilings or 12" pilings.

2 - will you be pouring these under water?

3 - what is your location? this is essential because you need to go below the frost line, which means 4' tubes might not be long enough. Because if your frost line is say 30" and you go 36" below grade, that leaves only 12" above grade, where your wood will be placed.... if there is running water there, youd be better off to raise the height of the piling in order to keep the wood from being submerged.

4 - what is the length you need to span?
