Bore and Jack Under Highway 9

by Carla Whitmire | Mar 29, 2014
The Department Of Transportation would not allow an open cut to be made across Highway 9 in Lake Lure for the installation of the water main so it had to be bored and jacked.
This crew was subcontracted by Whitmire Grading to jack and bore a sleeve underneath Highway 9 so the water main connection could be made for the Lake Lure Professional Park. After the sleeve is installed our crew will slide the eight inch water line through it and then connect it to the water main.
