Geosyntec Awarded Geotechnical Instrumentation Monitoring and Data Management at Chickamauga Lock

Geosyntec Consultants, Inc. was awarded a 2-year contract for the Geotechnical Instrumentation Monitoring and Data Management as a subcontractor to the general contractor, Heeter Geotechnical Construction, for the US Army Corps of Engineers Chickamauga Lock Replacement project.

Project background: Chickamauga Navigation Lock, seven miles upstream of Chattanooga, Tenn., at river mile 471, is owned by the Tennessee Valley Authority and operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Upstream of Chickamauga Lock are 318 miles of navigable waterway used to transport materials to and from industries, TVA facilities and the Department of Energy facilities at Oak Ridge. A concrete aggregate problem causes structural concerns at the existing lock, and will result in closure of the lock at some point. The existing 60-foot by 360-foot lock is a non-standard size that is not suited to the barges used by the transportation industry today. The new 110-foot by 600-foot Chickamauga Lock, designed and constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nashville District, will replace the existing lock, improve locking efficiency, and solve the structural issues caused by the concrete aggregate at Chickamauga Lock.
