Final concrete placements complete Center Hill Dam barrier wall
A Bauer Foundation Corporation construction crew places the last concrete March 17, 2015 into the Center Hill Dam embankment signifying the completion of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District’s remediation project. The Corps of Engineers and its Contractor Bauer Foundation Corporation installed a 2.5-feet thick concrete barrier wall vertically along the embankment in overlapping rectangular columns as deep as 308 feet from the top of the dam deep into the solid-rock foundation. The placement completes the $115 million foundation barrier wall project that began July 11, 2012. Enough concrete was placed into the embankment to build a four-foot wide sidewalk 200 miles or about the distance between Nashville and Knoxville in Tennessee.
