8” & 10” Riverdale to Sharp
Milestone Companies was under contract to install approximately 2 miles of an 8″ oil pipeline as well as a 10″ gas pipeline spanning from Riverdale to Sharp. The South Platte River was crossed in addition to both Brighton Road and Riverdale Road.
One major challenge of this project was the HDD that spanned under the river and continued to pass under Riverdale Road, which was approximately 4,000 feet. Steering was difficult as the bore had a combination of solid rock and cobblestone. Though bundling the 8” and 10” lines into the bore was a challenge, Milestone Companies managed to do it with zero lost time.
