This tunnel project runs under the dividing street between the newly constructed Watertower Square Apartments and the neighboring Mayflower Community Health Center. The tunnel will serve it’s residents with a quick and simple way to access the neighboring health facility. The walls of this 420 ft. tunnel were formed using 8-inch LiteForm ICF (Insulated Concrete Forms). LiteDeck Insulated Concrete Forms were used to form the 20-inch thick concrete roof. 166 total yards of concrete were poured monolithically into the insulating forms in less than 3 hours! This is considerable labor and time-saving advantage to using Insulating Concrete Forms.
