The Pitt River Bridge is part of the Gateway Program, a long-term initiative to improve roads and bridges throughout Greater Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada. The bridge was designed to accommodate different lane allocations and to allow for one lane to be added in the future.
In early 2007, Peter Kiewit Sons was awarded the design build (DB) contract to construct a new 400 m long, high level, cable stay, multi-lane bridge to replace the existing swing span bridges. The cable towers and back stays of the bridge, as required by contract, had to be supported on piles terminating in very dense Pleistocene deposits...

Driven piles are commonly used as deep foundations for all types of structures in various geotechnical conditions. Their engineering design includes structural, geotechnical, and drivability considerations; and their construction involves manufacturing, driving, testing, and inspection. Dynamic pile testing methods are routine procedures in modern piling work and are an integral part of the design and installation process.Typically, several Test Piles are installed for the purposes of confirming the project design assumptions, evaluating the contractor’s means and methods, and establishing production piles’ length and driving criteria. Alternatively, 100% dynamic testing is performed...
