LONG recently had the pleasure of attending the Surveying and Mapping Society of Georgia’s 2021 Annual Meeting & Summer Convention, hosted by the Jekyll Island Club Hotel. Among the surveyors that were present, the following LONG personnel were in attendance: our Vice President of SUE and Survey, Sean Byers, our Land Development Survey Manager, Jaime Higgins, PLS, CP, and our SUE and Survey Project Manager, David Simmons, PLS.

Over the 3 days we enjoyed an agenda packed full of excellent speakers, delicious food, inspiring exhibits, and new connections.

It was wonderful to see everyone and connect in person with our Georgia surveying family. Thanks to SAMSOG’s incredible team for putting together a great conference with a host of top-notch speakers and sessions designed to foster professional development.  

LONG is already looking forward to next year’s conference in Savannah!

Bridge Replacement Complete in Elbert County

LONG recently completed a bridge project in Elbert County for CR 313/Fork Road at Deep Creek. This project was part of the Low Impact Bridge Program (LIBP) for GDOT. William Bamberg, P.E., one of our transportation engineers, headed this pursuit. Services included replacing the existing structurally deficient posted bridge on CR 313 (Fork Creek Road) over Deep Creek. The existing typical section consisted of two, 7- to 8-foot dirt travel lanes with minimal shoulders and was replaced with two, 9- to 10-foot travel lanes with 4-foot shoulders and rural side ditches. The bridge was replaced along the existing alignment. The new single-span bridge is 60 feet long and 30 feet wide and includes a new guardrail.

LONG was recently honored to serve as an Eagle Sponsor in the 11th Annual Golf Tournament at The Ford Plantation, presented by Great Oaks Bank.

Sean Byers, Our Vice President of Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) and Survey, represented LONG along with our SUE friends Chris Burke and P. Nathan Brown, RLS with Hussey Gay Bell, and Chris Marsengill, PE, PTOEwith Kimley Horne.

It was a beautiful day on the course. We were happy to offer cold beverage refreshments and jovial conversation to the passing golfers. We also provided fun incentives for our tent guests by giving out a sleeve of LONG blue golf balls for anyone who could hit the green on their first swing, and the Chamber of Commerce offered prizes for those who could hit closest to the hole using a child-sized golf club.

We had a blast!
