The $46 million reconstruction of State Highway 332 over the Brazos River required 4 - 96” drilled shafts 130’ deep on each end of the long river span. All 8 of these shafts were constructed with permanent surface casing to bring them up out of the river. A. H. Beck manufactured a custom hydraulic drill that attached to 110-ton Link Belt crane in order to excavate the shafts. Concreting the shafts took 260 CY of a specially designed mix developed and supplied by Dorsett Brothers Concrete Supply, Inc., and was completed in less than a 5 hour period.
