ABSTRACT : A growing segment of pipe installation includes trenchless applications. They are less disruptive to traffic, communities, utilities and businesses. Trenchless installation saves time, saves money and improves roadway safety. It is important to know this competitive option. As our nation's infrastructure approaches its service life, jacking pipe and box procedure is a beneficial option worth considering.
