Lower East Bank Intersection Sewer project was a 1.5-mile, 96″ and 84″ interceptor sewer in downtown Dallas. The project involved the design of a major sanitary sewer system to divert sewerage along Market Center Blvd and Riverfront Blvd to the East Bank Diversion Facility near Woodall Rodgers Freeway. The proposed sewer route included the design of large sewer pipes with major junction box structures along downtown major arterial streets and crossing of several major streets, the channel under Trinity River, major storm box culverts and large horseshoe storm sewers, and sanitary sewer siphon before connecting to the diversion facility. Installation of the proposed sewer involved a combination of open-cut and sewer tunnel methods.

As a design consultant, Aurora provided technical support for sewer tunnels, structure design, waterline/storm sewer realignment and reconnection, and traffic management services. During the preliminary engineering phase, Aurora provided the development of geotechnical data and exploration program, constructability assessment and recommendation on the proposed route, evaluation and development of design alternatives, traffic control, construction phasing options, and review of project specifications.
