PLANT 6 TESTING
Donnie Leeper was at the Crestview asphalt
plant in October, testing the environmental Donnie Leeper

statistics of the bag house, making sure no


dust or pollution is going into the air. Dust
is supposed to go back into the mix and only
clean steam should come out. He stuck probes
in steam pipe, and the probes read moisture,
dust, steam, heat, etc. Then he cleaned the
filters to tell the numbers. It's a three-hour Tim Gill Jakob Braun Chris Hudgens
long process. The probes must stay in for an
hour, being moved every 2 and 1/2 minutes.

On the North side of the project, Donald Lipford's crew has been spreading topsoil, digging out areas of millings and placing lifts of lime rock, getting
ready for pavement, with Kenneth Cook's crew finishing up the subgrade. Ben Gate's crew came in and laid 1 and 1/2" of structural asphalt and then
one lift of friction course. On the South side of the project, Rodney Anderson's crew performed a 154 yd concrete for the 52' by 64' box culvert floor.

/DEALING WITH THE SINKHOLE/


In early December, a massive sinkhole around 40' wide
opened up on U.S. 19. Jeff Stemple and Ricky Reed took charge
and began unloading milling into the hole in order to fill it
up and stabilize it. It took around 50-60 loads. One hundred
55' concrete columns, with 1' of fill every two layers of geo-
grid were also put inside the sinkhole to prevent it from
collapsing again. The road was traffic ready in early February.

we all need to consider daily and try to ensure that we adhere to them: Marquis Kelly Traffic Control Spec. 4/5/21

1. If it looks unsafe, it probably is.


2. If you don't know how to operate it, don't mess with it.
3. If you need help or safety equipment, get it.
4. Obey signs. ISSUE VERSE
5. Wear all PPE.
6. Constantly be aware of your surroundings.

The long lasting, far reaching effects of any accident affects our
families, friends, and fellow employees. Some of the key factors that
we may have to deal with are loss or reduction of income, physical
disability, and physical and emotional pain. Let’s take a long look at our
activities and assure ourselves, our families and our co-workers that
we are going to do everything in our power to work smarter and safer.
