Floyd County's newest bridge installed at Hammersmith Park

After 2 long days and many semi-trailers loaded with bridge sections, Floyd County's newest bridge was installed. With lots of detailing work left to complete the project, it should be prepared for construction (Kevin Hammersmith Memorial Park improvements) traffic in early May! A big thank you to the Fulkerson Contracting, Inc. crew for a job well done!! If you were around Charlestown Road and I 265 you noticed a very large crane. It was the centerpiece of the installation by exemplar staff from Padgett Cranes. Contech (bridge manufacturer) and CivilCon (bridge design) had lots of staff on hand to make sure the installation went perfect! In addition, a huge THANK YOU to the Northside Christian Church staff and patrons for their patience with the road closure during the installation.

More updates on the Kevin Hammersmith Memorial Park will continue throughout 2016!
