T.Y. Lin International was retained by the Saint Lawrence Seaway Corporation to investigate and remediate a highway tunnel located under the upstream sill of the Eisenhower Lock. The tunnel had experienced heavy leakage that resulted in heaving of the pavement and failure of the ceramic tiles. The work required precision layout of concrete coring operations, as well as reviewing reports from USACE and available contract documents. A fiber optic borescope was used to inspect core holes, and a petrographic examination of the cylinders was utilized to determine grout characteristics. Remediation details were developed that included precision grouting of the various joints to arrest the flow of water.
