08-05-10/Thursday---Kenneth Griffin of McClellanville, S.C. and a concrete finisher with Cape Romain Contractors of Wando, S.C., works Thursday to fabricate a test pile at the site of the future back gate overpass near the intersection of U.S. 17 Bypass and Farrow Parkway in Myrtle Beach. According to site superintendent Tony Ranchich of Cape Romain, the test pile will be erected to monitor stress levels needed by the overpass piles to see how deep they need to be inserted into the ground. Special sensors will be placed on the pile to check pressure levels. Work on the testing phase is expected to last through this week with actual construction on the site still up to 10 months away.
