Rehabilitation of Bridge No. 874541 (West Bridge) and Bridge No. 874544 (Bear Cut Bridge) on the Rickenbacker Causeway

YEAR: 2013


The Bear Cut underground utility construction project consisted of two directional drills. One was the installation of approximately 1,400 linear feet of 20” Water main across West Bride via Horizontal Directional Drilling. The second HDD was 3,000 linear feet of 20” Water main across Bear Cut Bridge on the Rickenbacker Causeway in Key Biscayne, FL. DMSI pipe tapped into the existing allowing for this relocation of the bridge superstructures to be reconstructed. The proposed water main was fully constructed prior to decommissioning the existing system. Extensive public outreach was performed in order to maintain all operations.
