Utility Overview

A vast network of underground utility lines brings the services we could not live without to homes and businesses. Clean tap water is delivered through a series of pipelines, while sewage and runoff is returned through the cavernous storm water system. We can access the wonders of the internet, stream video and watch cable television thanks to a vast web of fiber optic and wire cable that spans the continent. Think cellular technology has eliminated the need for wires? Think again. Wires connect cellular towers to the grid. While electricity is largely transmitted through above-ground transmission towers and power lines, buried lines bring it to meters and into our homes.

Our Role

When utility providers are installing, repairing or updating new or existing utility services, they often require the trenchless construction services of The Crossing Group to complete small but critical parts of the project.

Our horizontal directional drilling, boring and auguring services help our clients install lines beneath busy and complex obstacles – such as roadways and river bodies. Using our hydrovac services division, we can safely expose existing utilities for the purpose of new installations or repairs. Whatever the requirement, we have the tools, the technologies and the team to get the job done. Safely. Economically. Efficiently.
