Pictured Above: MINIMAL GROUND DISRUPTION: VDOT - Alexandria Virginia: Huxted Tunneling installed a 75.5 inch O.D. tunnel 184 feet long under the Beltway for Shirley Contracting, LLC. The tunnel was installed successfully with less than five feet of cover over the top of the pipe. Ground radar confirmed there was no loss of ground or voids caused by the tunnel, and grouting was not necessary.
