For bridge owner‘s it is imperative that they know the condition of a bridge at all times for the safety of all those who use it. To assist in the ability to analyze the condition of bridges, Atlantic Subsurface Imaging LLC is now using ground penetrating radar in New York as well as Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
By using ground penetrating radar as well as doing concrete inspection in NJ, Atlantic Subsurface Imaging LLC can efficiently scan the bridge and determine the condition of it which will let the professionals at Atlantic Subsurface Imaging know what needs to be done for rehabilitation. Ground Penetrating Radar can also be used on new construction to make sure that the job was done thoroughly, taking out all of the guess work out the process. With this, a detailed report with graphical, along with empirical data, will be produced giving concrete information on problem areas that will attention.
Atlantic Subsurface Imaging, LLC uses state-of-the-art equipment like GPR or Ground Penetrating Radar which is fast, safe, accurate, and best of all non-destructive. Some other uses for GPR are:

- Identifying rebar location and depth
- Obtaining overlay thickness
- Determining concrete cover depth
