Last week, as part of the Emerging Leaders Forum, a group of HMB employees went zip-lining in the Red River Gorge. They had a great time, despite getting stuck in the middle of one due to high winds. Thank you to the Red River Gorge Zipline Tours for hosting us!
HMB's Brad Meyer and Steve Criswell were on-site of the Louisville Bridges project this week to view the progress and to listen to U.S. Secretary of Transportation, Anthony Foxx, speak on the importance of projects like this to our communities and to our country.
Ever wonder what Walt Disney thought transportation would look like in the future? In 1958, Disney and his Imagineers created "Disney's Magic Highway" to showcase his predictions. He had some pretty cool ideas!
HMB's softball team has a game tonight @ 7:30. We are playing at Capital View Park (Frankfort, KY) on the Williams Field. Come by and watch, hopefully we will get another win!
Glow in the dark roads?! The Dutch recently unveiled glow in the dark road markings on a 500m (.31 mile) stretch of highway. The paint contains a "photo-luminising" powder that charges up in the daytime and slowly releases a green glow at night, doing away with the need for streetlights. Innovation and creativity at work!
Streetlights on a 500m stretch of highway in the Netherlands are replaced by glow in the dark road markings in a pilot project.
Congratulations to the Water & Wastewater Engineering Division on being selected by the Frankfort Sewer Department for the Old Lawrenceburg Road Pump Station Replacement project. Keep up the good work!
USDOT TOUR STOPS IN KENTUCKY - U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx is traveling across the country to showcase the importance of transportation investment. The Invest in America, Commit to the Future bus tour is visiting communities that have created jobs and new opportunities by investing in transportation. The tour will visit eight states. Secretary Foxx viewed progress this morning on the Louisville-Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges Project. He was joined by Gov. Steve Beshear, Rep. John Yarmuth and Mayor Greg Fischer in downtown Louisville.
While the downtown portion of the Louisville Southern Indiana Ohio River Bridges project may be the most visible, significant progress is also being made on the East End portion of the project. The East End section will connect the Gene Snyder Freeway in Kentucky with the Lee Hamilton Highway in Southern Indiana. Along with a new bridge, twin, two-lane tunnels are being constructed under the historic Drumanard property.
Tunnel construction for the eastern bridge near Prospect is expected to continue until the end of bridge construction in late 2016. As for blasting, it will continue along the Snyder toward I-71, beyond Wolf Pen Branch Road, through early 2016.
We have some good news to report today. HMB has been selected for two new projects! The Western Lewis Rectorville Water and Gas District selected HMB to provide engineering services for approximately 12,000 feet of new 3" and 4" water line extensions, the rehabilitation and repainting of the Flat Gap Tank, the refurbishment of Well #3 and the installation of approximately 500 new radio read meters.
HMB was also selected by the Hardin County Water District No. 1 to develop a Backflow Prevention Program to be implemented at its Fort Knox water utility system.
Congratulations! Keep up the good work.
Happy Monday! Did everyone enjoy the nice weather we had this weekend?
