Athens Integrated Pipeline Project

Athens, Texas

Stiver Engineering provided liner plate tunnel and bore pit design (launch and receiving) for 10 tunnel crossings as part of this integrated pipeline project. We also provided a trench safety design for pipeline installation, calculations for required jacking loads for carrier pipe in tunnels, and a grouting plan that accounted for pipe buoyancy calculations. This $21 million project for the Tarrant Regional Water District included 2,000 linear feet of 9-foot, 5-inch excavated diameter tunnel in 10 different tunnels crossing Texas Department of Transportation roads, each with launch and receiving shafts (20 shafts).
