Belt Line Emergency Sink Hole Repair

This project involved stabilizing a sink hole that occurred adjacent to Belt Line Road just south of I-20 in Grand Prairie, TX. The hole was approximately 50 feet wide and 30 feet deep with one edge located at the curbline of this six lane thoroughfare. Immediate response was needed to prevent the collapse of one of more lanes of this vital traffic artery. Construction was also complicated by the presence of two fiber optic cables that crossed the sink hole.
