Riverside Theater Dock Wall Injection

Riverside Theater Dock Wall Injection

Scope

Michels Construction, Inc. performed a repair of the Riverside Theater dock wall. Heavy rainstorms in Spring of 2020 caused the water levels of the Milwaukee River and Lake Michigan to rapidly rise, placing additional stress on the 1920's wakefield wall and building foundation. The building experienced several breaches in the base of the wall, causing severe flooding in the lower level. Repair was required to stop the infiltration.

The prime location for repair was below the riverwalk and was best accessed by water. The entire repair was performed from a barge and all material used needed to be delivered by a tug boat. The repair involved two injection methods, one into the mud layer and the other into the void space below the wall where the erosion had resulted.
