9:45am-10:45am – Understanding the Benefits of Directional Boring

Christopher Root, Vermeer North Atlantic

Directional boring technology has evolved to the point that it is extremely accurate and cost effective. It has many potential use applications for civil engineering, from crossing streams and road, to cutting through rock, to working on very steep slopes between two given points.  The session is meant to give all a general outline of its benefits and limitations.



11:00am-12:00pm – Better HOP Designs to Minimize Necessary Field Changes

Fran Hanney & Matthew Miele, PENNDOT District 6-0
