Lane Construction, Salini Impregilo Complete Excavation of Dugway Storage Tunnel

The Lane Construction Corporation and Salini Impregilo recently completed the excavation of the Dugway Storage Tunnel (DST), a $153-million project in Cleveland, Ohio to help reduce the flow of raw sewage into Lake Erie.

The TBM nicknamed Fulvio broke through the wall of the DST-8 shaft on the DST project, bringing to an end a 4.5-kilometer (2.8-mile) journey begun in July 2017. The Dugway Storage Tunnel is 4.5 km long, with a diameter of 8 metres. The contract involves the construction of 6 shafts of varying diameters and depths, connections between the tunnel and the shafts, and a series of concrete structures for the collection and transporting of wastewater and rainwater.

The tunnel, set to go into service in 2019, is the second of seven tunnels commissioned by the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District under $3-billion Project “Clean Lake” to reduce CSOs.The Group is involved in similar projects elsewhere in the country, like the Anacostia River Tunnel and the adjacent Northeast Boundary Tunnel (NEBT), in Washington, D.C and the Three Rivers Protection and Overflow Reduction Tunnel in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
