Pipeline Construction installed an 8″ mdpe gas line under Love Creek on the Rutledge Pike Gas Relocation Project. The first installation consisted of boring in solid rock for 700 ft under Chilhowee Drive and under Loves Creek. The second bore was along Chilhowee Drive just down stream of the first bore. This bore was 550 feet in length and was also in solid rock. Both bores were critical milestones needed to complete the project. The bores were completed with a Vermeer D50 directonal boring machine.
Pipeline Construction installed an 8″ PE Gas line under Turkey Creek as part of theTDOT Everett Road / Kingston Pike Improvement Project. This bore was installed under Turkey Creek to help protect the environmentally sensitive areas near this bridge widening project. The bore was approximately 400 ft in length and was in solid rock the entire length. Once the gas line is relocated to this new location the road widening project can continue.
Pipeline has recently purchased a Topcon RTK GPS surveying instrument. This equipment will allow Pipeline to layout the utility to be installed as well as any proposed utilities or drainage structures so that future conflicts can be avoided. Thus avoiding costly delays and expediting projects. This equipment can also be used to create as-builts and aid in GIS mapping for utility operators.
Pipeline Construction installs a 12″ steel high pressure gas line under Pellissippi Parkway as part of the TDOT Lovell Road relocation project. This 12″ steel gas line installed by horizontal directional boring method. The bore was approximately 400ft long.
