Deep Foundations – types of piling.  VDOT uses timber piles (typically state forces’ projects), precast concrete piles, cast-in-place concrete piles, steel H-piles, and sometimes steel pile shells.  Drilled shafts are used for major bridges to reduce the size of footings and for bridges where required for scour design.
