HORIZONTAL DIRECTIONAL BORE CROSSING THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY AT BLUE HERON
Palm Beach County, FL
This AT&T horizontal directional bore project consisted of the installation of utility conduit containing fiber optic cables, which crossed beneath the Intracoastal Waterway, a federal navigation channel. We conducted seagrass mapping and environmental resource permitting through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The conduit installation also required execution of a public easement to obtain authorization to cross Sovereign Submerged State Lands. The bore path traversed below Palm Beach County’s Phil Foster Park, within existing Florida Department of Transportation right-of-way, and adjacent to a recently installed FPL utility line, and required extensive coordination of the civil design, geospatial survey, and environmental permitting.
