I-64 Transmission Main

LWC-Transmission-LineEastern Jefferson County, Kentucky
Along Interstate 64

Owner: Louisville Water Company

Client: CDM (Camp Dresser and McKee)

Geotechnical Engineer: Vector Engineers, Inc.

Project Manager: Dr. Wayne A. Karem, PE

Completion date: June 2008

A proposed transmission line will extend 28,677 linear feet along interstate 64 to extend and expand the Louisville water system. Vector Engineers, Inc. was retained to provide geotechnical engineering consulting which consisted of drilling soil test borings every 500 feet along the alignment and drilling rock soundings every 100 feet along the alignment. The terrain was rolling and required sections to be cleared and access was limited. In addition, Vector was required to obtain permission from property owners to access private property. The project was successfully completed within the time required by CDM to complete their design to the Louisville Water Company.
