BLOG – Temporary Plugs for Segments

Once the Selmon Extension crews at the offsite casting yard cast each segment, they’re placed in the storage area until they’re ready to be shipped off to the construction site. While in storage, team members make sure that no debris, insects, or animals are in the holes so they use material such as a foam mattress or small nerf footballs. Crews cut up and ball up the material and temporarily stick it inside the holes prior to inserting the expansion joints until they’re ready to be shipped off.
