Work is on target for a $30.9 million Corridor H bridge in Moorefield, WV, Vecellio & Grogan’s largest single-bridge contract to date. The 2,200-ft.-long bridge will take traffic over agricultural land and the Potomac River, rising to a 90-ft.-height.
The project involves a unique design feature, with special form liners used to give the substructure concrete the appearance of natural fieldstone.
Work on the substructure is winding down, with structural steel and girder work beginning this fall. The bridge is scheduled for completion in July 2009.
Earlier this year, V&G completed site development work in Mason County, WV, for Gatlin LLC. The division excavated 838,000 cu. yds. of earth, provided erosion control and created de-watering ponds for a slope-face coal mine and a coal preparation plant. The project team’s performance helped V&G secure an additional Gatlin LLC contract for a sliding hill coal mine. In addition, V&G has provided grading and erosion control for the Overland Belt Phase II mine, for Little River Transports.
In Greensboro, NC, V&G has entered its fourth year of work on the FedEx Cargo Hub at the Piedmont Triad International Airport. V&G continues to secure contracts for extensive work, in addition to its $40 million site development project for a new FedEx building that began construction in October. Over 340,000 sq. yds. of concrete will have been poured by September 2008.
The division is entering the second phase of the Bryan Boulevard relocation, and has also started work on a $30 million contract to construct a new runway. The project team is moving earth 22 hours a day to ensure its portion is completed by July 2008. This spring, crews also began site development work for a new Honda aircraft factory on the airport campus. V&G has up to 140 people on site when these projects are in full swing.
