This paper describes the response and performance of a pressurized 300-psi natural gas pipeline that was immediately adjacent to construction work for pile foundations of a bridge. The sheet pile cofferdam walls for the bridge abutment are successfully installed 2-4 ft from a 3.0-ft diameter steel pipeline. Performance controls for allowable vibration and movement are described. Measured pipeline vibration and displacements are related to construction activities. Rationales for changes in construction whenever pipeline response approached the control limits are discussed.
