Water Main Design Showcases Variety
of Construction Techniques

Project Name
Addison Road Water Main Design
City of Wood Dale
Wood Dale, Illinois
Service Period
2010 - 2013

The Addison Road Water Main in Wood Dale was constructed using open cut and trenchless techniques and was completed in multiple phases over the course of three years. Directional drilling facilitated construction at the Addison Road crossing and through the Salt Creek Forest Preserve limiting construction restoration costs. In addition to a topographic survey and utility locates, the project also required IEPA, Forest Preserve, and DuDOT permitting.
