Walker Diving was recently hired by Crossing Construction Co. to rebuild the timber fender on the Route 95 Bridge at Darby Creek. Walker’s work involved completely removing the existing fender then installing a new timber fender system. Working from a barge, Walker Diving used divers with underwater chain saws to cut apart the old fender system. Next the divers installed new notched vertical timbers by using epoxy anchor bolts. Lastly, new horizontal face boards were connected to the new vertical timbers. Strong tidal currents and restricted overhead clearance caused Walker Diving to set up a specially-equipped barge to address these issues.
