Eutaw Construction was recently awarded a $2.59 million contract to improve a sewer system for the City of Hattiesburg in Hattiesburg, MS. This project consists of installing approximately 3,843 LF of 30” sanitary gravity sewer main ranging from depths of 15–25 FT deep. The project also consists of installing approximately 20 precast manhole structures ranging from 5-8 FT in diameter at various depths, with the deepest structure being installed at nearly 26 FT deep. This 8-10 month project is set to kick off in the latter part of June.
State and community leaders earlier today broke ground on one of the biggest highway projects in state history.
Arkansas Highway and Transportation Department Director Scott Bennett, Highway Commission Chairman Dick Trammel, former Highway Commissioner Bobby Hopper and Springdale Mayor Doug Sprouse were among the estimated 100 people who attended the event that helped kick off construction on the U.S. 412 bypass of Springdale.
The four-lane, interstate-style freeway section of the bypass will cost $100.6 million.
Ms. Luann Little’s 4th Grade Gifted Class at Shaw Elementary in Springdale, AR has been working on a special project about highway construction, since the Hwy. 412 Bypass is going to be built near the school. The 11 students took on various roles to look at the project through different perspectives. The roles consisted of Botanist, Biologist, Geologist, Economist, Land Owner, Lawyer, Government (AHTD), and Civil Engineer. Keith Clark, Transportation Division Manager, was invited to speak to the class to provide them with the perspective of the contractor and answer any questions that they might have concerning construction. The class will take the information that they have gathered from their areas of research and put together a presentation for the school and community. At Eutaw, not only do we build highways, but we help build young minds as well.
