Road, Rail, Runway Crossings

Underground utilities have long shared the right‐of‐way with highways, railroads, and airports. While unseen by the public, trenchless construction provides safe installations with minimal disruption to the environment. Open‐cut installations not only disrupt the flow of traffic, but the trenching process also disturbs the subgrade, which can lead to settlement and or damage to the utility and surface structures. Trenchless technology is often the preferred method for installing transportation infrastructure to mitigate these risks and the social, environmental, and economic benefits they provide for the owner.
