Potholing For Utilities


The Selmon Extension Construction Team is currently Potholing for Utilities.  Potholing is a method that includes vacuum excavation for the purpose of obtaining visual confirmation of utilities and underground obstructions near or crossing the planned bore path. This is a process by where a small, exploratory hole is dug along the proposed path of underground construction to ensure there’s no conflict with existing subsurface construction or any other feature that will interfere with the project.

Trenchless technology, like any subsurface construction, requires our Contractors to know exactly where any adjacent underground utilities and obstructions are located.

Contractors will be Potholing for Utilities until the middle of February.  There will be minimal impacts to the traveling public while this task is being performed.
