Project #16226


Vandenberg Air Force Base awarded a contract to construct a replacement for the 13th Street Bridge, originally constructed in 1970. The bridge serves as the only on‐base transport route and vehicle link between the north and south portions of Vandenberg AFB. D.J. Scheffler & Nye was selected by General Contractor Granite Construction to provide the equipment and manage the installation of six large diameter bridge piers, which at 100 feet deep and 10 feet wide are the largest known installation of such piers on the west coast.  The project was completed in the fall of 2016.  Key project facts:

  • 10' diameter shafts
  • 100' deep piles installed without anomalies, using gamma gamma testing
  • Drilled using the “open hole” method, saving substantially on budgeted cost
