I-69 Water Main Relocations
Greene and Monroe Counties, Indiana
With the water distribution system conflicting with the route of the new Interstate 69 (I-69) corridor in Greene and Monroe Counties, 47,000 linear feet (LF) of water main had to be relocated, modified and/or abandoned prior to the construction of the interstate. Wessler assisted Eastern Heights Utilities (EHU) with water main relocations at 19 locations. Wessler’s services included design, survey, permitting, construction administration, and inspection during the interstate construction by five different Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) contractors.
The water mains were the first utility relocated in all but two locations, with the Wessler team accelerating work schedules with limited notice, sometimes by as much as three months. The fast tracking of schedules provided significant benefit to INDOT, the I-69 project construction schedule and EHU.
