The City of Tomahawk, Wisconsin, needed to replace an aging bridge. But the bridge also carried phone, electric, natural gas, cable, water main and sewage force main utilities. The bridge would need to be replaced without interrupting service to the community.
The project team came up with a solution to sink multiple conduit packs, containing the different utilities, into a dredged trench along 700-feet of river bottom. After utilities were relocated, the bridge was replaced.
