36” to 42” Fair Oaks Park Wastewater Pipe Bursting / Replacement
Kimley-Horn evaluated the condition and hydraulic capacity of approximately 3,400 linear feet of an existing 36-inch RCP wastewater interceptor in Fair Oaks Park in Dallas, Texas.
The existing interceptor was constructed in 1953 and was severely corroded along the crown. Due to growth and redevelopment in the area, additional capacity was needed to carry the peak design flows.
Kimley-Horn designed the improvements to include 2,150 LF of 36” to 42” pipe bursting, 150 LF of 36” cured-in-place pipe rehabilitation, and 1,000 LF of 42” open cut replacement. The pipe bursting replacement was constructed underneath three existing park softball fields to minimize disruption. The cured-in-place rehabilitation was performed underneath an existing roadway and a major 42” water transmission line crossing where pipe bursting was not feasible due to the crossing clearance. The open cut portion was constructed in an area with no utility crossings and/or surface improvements.
Kimley-Horn’s design approach helped Dallas Water Utilities to minimize disruption, minimize costs, and accelerate the construction schedule.
