Pier Caps and Abutments for Exact Installation
American Concrete Products manufactures precast pier and abutment caps to standard and project specific applications.
These components are installed under traffic without disturbing the train schedule. Steel piling is driven into the ground through the existing structure and cut off to the exact height so the caps and abutments can be welded in place.
Contact an American Concrete Products – Railroad Division representative for more pier cap and abutment information.
