Jack and bore crossings of petroleum pipelines began last week and were completed Monday, September 20. This is the first of two jack and bore crossings to be completed on the project. Lowe Construction was on-site to perform the work. A 48″ diameter steel pipe was bored under the Wolverine Pipe Line utilities to provide for a trenchless crossing. Safety coordination and utility representative oversight was top priority as the work progressed. This crossing was completed safely and without incident.
Storm sewer installation will continue to connect the bored steel pipe to the already installed portion of the relocated Bauer Drain. Preparations will begin within the next week to perform the remaining jack and bore operation under petroleum pipelines on the other portions of the project.
