“Hinkle Construction Services Begins New Construction on US 68 Near Millersburg”
Hinkle Construction Services (HCS) is pleased to announce that it has been selected by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) District 7 Office to perform new construction services on US 68 near Millersburg, Kentucky.
“This is a $10.6 Million project. It will entail new routing around the city of Millersburg and will include approximately 610,000 CY of mass excavation and embankment, blasting, bridge construction, surface water controls, erosion control measures and paving. HCS will provide all earthworks, grade & drain, surface water and erosion control measures,” HCS Director of Marketing/Project Manager Chip Simmons said.
This is the first KYTC project awarded to Hinkle Construction Services, LLC. Work on the project began in late August 2015; the completion date is July 15, 2017. Ernie Turner (a Hinkle family employee for 25 years) is the project foreman.
The project includes several critical construction aspects, including the completion of all box culverts, according to Simmons. “This is necessary in order to perform mass excavation and embankment. A large amount of material must be excavated from one side of the creek and placed as embankment on the opposite side. This material cannot be addressed until the box culverts are ready in order to cross existing waterways,” he said. Bridge construction will also be critical in the scheduling process to insure that other tasks within the project can be met.
HCS will work with the following companies on the project:
•RL Caudill & Sons – blasting operations
•Frederick & May – bridge construction and concrete structures & box culverts
•NH Stone – guardrail installation
•Hinkle Contracting Company – asphalt and paving
•Bunn Construction – edge drain installation
•Cedar Valley Seeding – hydro-seeding and mulch
