LONG presents to Cobb County Utility Coordination Committee

As a leading Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) & Utility Coordination (UC) service provider throughout the Southeast, LONG had the privilege of presenting to the Cobb County Utility Coordination Committee. One of our Lead SUE Technicians, Jacob Mewbourne, led the presentation to inform the audience on the importance of these services, the different quality levels, and how investigation of underground utilities drastically reduces or eliminates delays and claims related to utilities during construction.

The audience consisted of various utility owners such as Cobb EMC, Marietta Water, Marietta Power, ATT, and Austell Gas. Contractors present included Ansco and Cable East, and Vendors/Subcontractors in attendance included HydroX, Southern Hydro Vac, Arcadis, and Croy. 

Thank you to all who participated and for representing LONG, Jacob!

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.
