This sheet is the spur dike detail sheet. A spur dike prevents the washing and scouring
of the end bents. On this drawing you can see the plan view and a typical cross
section. In these areas a geotextile sheet and riprap are used. The plan view shows
where these materials are placed. Most of the spur dike is covered by both but there
are some areas covered only by revetment riprap.
Revetment riprap are white stones, on this project specified size of 18 inches.
For more specific information on both riprap and the geotextile material used, please
consult the bidding documents and the standard specs.
