New Vac Truck Rounds Out LONG Fleet

LONG is excited to introduce the newest member to our production fleet of vehicles which is our brand-new vacuum truck! This truck allows LONG’s Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) specialists to locate underground utilities swiftly and more precisely.

SUE vacuum trucks use air and/or water to safely uncover buried utilities. Once underground utilities are discovered, SUE professionals can verify their existence, condition and exact location. This enables engineers to plan construction projects that minimally impact utilities, and allows contractors to increase productivity and create safer job sites. LONG provides SUE services throughout the Southeast.

We are excited about this new investment, and we look forward to enhancing our SUE footprint!

GDOT Awards Long Statewide On-Call Contract for SUE

LONG was recently awarded a contract to provide statewide on-call subsurface utility engineering (SUE) services for the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT). LONG will support the GDOT on an “On-Call” basis; this newly awarded contract will remain in effect for three years.

LONG has been providing SUE services throughout the Southeast for the past 5+ years and is considered one of the largest SUE providers in the region, with more than 32 talented SUE staff.

Over the past five years, LONG has successfully worked on more than 300 SUE projects in Georgia, 150 of these SUE projects were directly for GDOT. Our technicians are experienced in utility records research and we staff nine in-house SUE crews that are outfitted with the latest equipment to provide designating, ground penetrating radar (GPR), and test holes. Our crews routinely locate underground utilities including water, gas, power, communication, CATV, fiber optics, fuel lines, force mains, and sanitary sewer lines for various utility companies/providers.

We are excited for the opportunity to lead the Overhead/Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) Services for this important statewide GDOT contract, and we are committed to exceeding GDOT’s expectations.
