Precast Abutment System
The precast anchored abutment wall allows shorter abutments and wingwalls to be set on relatively small foundations very quickly. For wall heights less than 20 feet, the patented anchor system resists overturning loads, so the foundation may be designed strictly for bearing loads. This HITEC-reviewed technology has been used on thousands of CON/SPAN bridge projects as a popular wingwall option.
In addition to the inherent advantages of precast such as quality control, durability and life cycle costs, the precasting process allows the easy application of a variety of aesthetic and architectural facade treatments. Each abutment is designed site-specific to meet a range of conditions for height, loading and alignment.
