Water Main Replacement

As part of the bridge replacement project for the DOT, JFC is installing approximately 2000 linear feet of 16” steel water main and 200’ of 20” casing. The work had to be done in phases to allow for our heavy/highway crews to complete their scope of work and to at the same time facilitate traffic pattern changes that needed to occur in order to prevent massive traffic hold-ups. Because the existing water main ran within the site where the bridge was being replaced it was seen as an opportunity to be proactive in replacing an aging water main before something went wrong. The existing line will be taken out of service only after a controlled energizing of the new main to assure service continuity to a Bristol-Myers-Squibb research facility and a corporate park. JFC crews worked with pipeline welders from Local 274 to complete this job.
