City Project PW02030
Purpose of Project
The purpose of this project is to repair leaking joints in the Winchester Tunnel. During the winter, water leaks from these joints, freezes and forms icicles over the roadway which are potential hazards falling on vehicles below.
The City of Memphis, through a Federal Surface Transportation Program Grant totaling $270,000, proposes to repair the joints with a hydrophilic (water absorbing), liquid polyurethane injection resin designed to seal leaks in concrete structures. This project is 100% Federally funded.
The project is to be done in phases to maintain traffic during construction and all work is to be done from the underneath the tunnel deck.
