Design-Build Emergency Mission Gorge Road Repair – San Diego, CA
The City of San Diego contracted Orion to identify the cause of Mission Gorge Road’s two foot settlement and to design and construct a permanent fix. Orion quickly determined the cause of the settlement to be a ruptured sewer line 28’ underground. Orion demolished over 2,100 feet of road and landscaped median to access the ruptured pipe via 28ft deep shored trenches. The sewer was placed on bypass and the damaged sections repaired. Because this repair caused major disruptions to local traffic, Orion and its designers worked on an accelerated schedule to get the road back in service.
