This project consisted of water main replacement on St. Paul Avenue from Benson Road to 39th Street North in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Work included water main replacement, sanitary manhole repair, replacement of surfacing over trenches, and boulevard restoration. The water main replacement successfully utilized both open trenching and directional drilling methods. Sanitary manhole repair included reconstructing manhole benches and inverts along with installing manhole external frame seals.
This project consisted of 4,200 L.F. of street improvements on 15th Street (Clark Avenue to Garfield Avenue), Garfield Avenue (15th Street to 12th Street), and State Avenue (Thresher Drive to 12th Street). Also included in this project were 4,400 feet of water main, 2,000 feet of sanitary sewer, and two directionally drilled river crossings approximately 350 feet each. Street paving on 15th Street and Garfield Avenue was with 9″ concrete, with asphalt concrete paving used on State Avenue and at intersecting street tie-ins. ADA accessible sidewalks were also installed on this project for safe access to the middle school and high school.
The City of Marshall Minnesota (population 13,664) is a thriving community in Southwest Minnesota, who relies on ground water to supply safe drinking water. Their growing water demands were exceeding the long-term capacity of their aquifers, which had the MN Department of Natural Resources placing further restrictions on their limited capacity. They had already gone 8 miles outside of town to find water years before… this time they would have to expand their search.
Marshall Municipal Utilities found a new water source which was 27 miles away from their water treatment plant. DGR Engineering designed a combination of 20” & 24” pipeline to deliver this water to the City. We used our knowledge of cost effective rural construction to save Marshall Municipal Utilities millions of dollars in construction costs. In the end, Marshall Municipal Utilities added over 4 million gallons per day of water to fuel their growth for years to come. And with the economical design and bid prices, they had money left in their project budget to tackle other much needed improvements.
