Woods Basement Systems was recently hired by Joe Monroe, the Operations Engineer for IDOT Region 5, District 8, to perform an emergency repair on two lanes of traffic on I-64, under the IL-158 Overpass.
Woods Basement Systems was chosen for this project for being the area's authorized PolyLEVEL™ dealer. PolyLEVEL™ is a structural-grade polymer used to safely and precisely lift and level concrete slabs in residential and commercial applications. The material's unique qualities that made it the perfect choice for this project were the low cost and the fact that there was virtually no down-time. PolyLEVEL cures in minutes.
After the 30 x 30 sq feet area was treated, traffic could resume almost immediately.
In just one day the entire problem area as successfully lifted and leveled. Treating the area conventionally would require breaking and removing existing concrete, excavating and preparing the area, pouring new concrete and waiting for it to cure. Besides labor intensive, costly and disruptive, with conventional concrete replacement, it would have been two weeks before they could safely allow traffic over the treated area.
