Lake Hefner Boat Dock
The 500-slip pier and boat dock on this municipal water reservoir in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, had fallen into disrepair, since little had been done to maintain its integrity and appearance. A restoration program was performed from fall to spring, allowing crews to take advantage of lowered water levels, but presenting the challenge of completion without interruption to the seasonal functioning of the structure. Microsilica shotcrete and a polymer-modified, cement-based, waterproof coating were the primary materials used on the project. Although the anticipated quantities nearly doubled, the project was completed safely and on time, earning high praise from the boat-owner’s association.
