Much-Needed Truck Climbing Lanes Under Way on SR 20 By Brenda Ruggiero CEG CORRESPONDENT

Two sections of truck climbing lanes are currently being constructed along State Route 20 in Georgia. The project begins approximately 600 ft. (182 m) west of Union Hill Road/CR 762 at mile post 15.96 and ends 1,500 ft. (457 m) east of Greenwood Court/CR 1968 at mile post 22.40. The project was awarded by the Georgia Department of Transportation to C. W. Matthews Contracting Co., Marietta, Ga., for a full dollar amount of $7,608,028.07. Chris Bennett serves as project superintendent. Notice to proceed was given on July 30, 2010. Work began on Sept. 20, 2010, and the job is on schedule for a completion date of July 31, 2013. The contract calls for the construction of 4.3 mi. (6.9 km) of truck passing lanes on SR 20, beginning west of Union Hill Road and extending east of Greenwood Court. The first section will add a 12-ft. (3.7 m) wide westbound lane beginning approximately 850 ft. (259 m) west of Shady Lane and continuing east of Macedonia Forest Circle. This section will be symmetrical except for the area around Beavers Ranch, where widening would occur to the south. The second section will add a 12-ft. (3.7 m) wide eastbound lane beginning approximately 1,300 ft. (396 m) west of the SR 20 at SR 369 intersection and continuing east, ending approximately 1,400

ft. (426 m) east of Greenwood Court. In addition, the project will realign and reconstruct intersections on State Route 20 at Union Hill Road and Harmony Drive, Cotton Road, Old Orange Mill Road and State Route 369. Bennett noted that heavy traffic conditions in the area have presented a challenge. Another difficulty has been working with limited right of way due to historical and environmentally sensitive areas. “A unique aspect was the see LANES page 6

removal and disposal of an abandoned Cherokee County water line that was made with asbestos,” Bennett said. “This required special permits and a special disposal site.” The 4.3 mi. (6.9 km) of road construction include 51,810 tons (47,001 t) of asphalt and 14,679 tons (13,316 t) of asbestos pipe removal. Earthmoving included 110,000 cu. yds. (76,455 cu m) of excavation with 70,000 cu. yds. (53,518 cu m) moved to on-site fills and 40,000 cu. yds. (30,582 cu m) to offsite waste areas. Major subcontractors include F.L. Haynie for drainage structures, S.E.E.D. for erosion control fencing, BC Landscaping for temporary and permanent grassing, Peek Pavement Markings for traffic striping, North Cherokee Electrical for traffic signal installation, Diversified Environmental for asbestos pipe removal and Mother Trucker for dirt and aggregate hauling.

Contractors Clear Old Dirt Airstrip at Fort Stewart By Corey Dickstein SAVANNAH MORNING NEWS

FORT STEWART, Ga. (AP) Strong gusts of wind whipped across the small, largely grass-covered clearing surrounded on all sides by towering pine trees, as uniformed soldiers and airmen worked tirelessly to transform it. An olive green Air Force steamroller rolled across cleared land, packing down dirt as two brown bulldozers pushed hundreds of pounds of earth 40 yards ahead of it Jan. 18. That dirt strip will be fully compacted, stretching about 4,700 ft. (1,432 m) long and 90 ft. (27 m) wide. In March, massive military aircraft will land on it, halting as instantaneously as 98-ft., 155,000-lb. planes are capable of — a crucial skill known to C-130 pilots as the combat landing. Since opening construction, about 25 civil engineering soldiers and airmen from the New Mexico Army and Air National Guard have cleared the long overrun airstrip on northwestern Fort Stewart near Camp Oliver. Exactly how long it’s been since the Army has used the Remagen Drop Zone wasn’t

known by the people who headed its revitalization program, but everyone agreed it’s been well over a decade. While Coastal Georgia is home to a vast array of military training grounds for all of the Armed Forces branches, it lacked a dirt airstrip where C-130 pilots could practice short-field — or combat — landings, said Air Force Col. Todd Freesemann, the commander of the Georgia Air National Guard’s Savannah Combat Readiness Training Center. “We were really looking for an area where we could do a dirt landing with the C-130s and have a combination drop zone/landing zone for our exercises,’’ Freesemann said. “Pilots haven’t been able to practice that skill in an ideal location like this in many years here.’’ With the CRTCs largest training operation — Global Guardian, which will include about 40 National Guard units from 26 states — coming up in March, Freesemann and his staff decided to try to find such an airstrip. Already familiar with Remagen from his days as an Army officer at Fort Stewart, Freesemann secured the proper clearance

and was assured the airstrip could be revitalized even after years of neglect. “What this gives us is a close-by landing zone so we can do a combination drop zone/landing zone here. When the 165th Airlift Wing picks up some jumpers, they’re going to be able to actually drop those jumpers on this drop zone and then they’re going to be able to land, pick them up and take them back.’’ It also allows pilots to perfect a skill often used in combat, said veteran C-130 pilot Air Force Lt. Col. D.J. Spisso, of the Georgia Air National Guard’s Savannah-based 165th Airlift Wing. “It makes a huge difference when you’re doing this on dirt — when you deploy, these airstrips are going to be dirt or gravel, something like that — instead of on concrete,’’ Spisso said. “The first time a pilot does this kind of landing, it’s scary, so it can really get to you. So, this asset is going to be really big, important for us around here.’’ For the New Mexico Army and Air National Guard units, constructing the airway was an opportunity for them to train on their specialty, said Air Force Lt. Col. Tom Benton, the commander of the 210th Red

Horse Squadron that teamed with the 92nd Engineer Company to complete the airstrip. Engineering units like his build similar landing zones in combat theatres such as Afghanistan. Practicing in the United States without the threat of attack, Benton said, is a rare opportunity. “We’re here for two weeks, and these guys are working very hard,’’ he said. “For us, this is training. This is an opportunity for us to come out here to Georgia and practice what it is we do, and give these folks something they really needed.’’ Freesemann said not only will the airstrip be useful for the CRTC and the 165th Airlift Wing, Army troops at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield will get valuable training because of its availability, too. “At the end of the day, we’re going to have a great landing zone that this entire area is going to be able to use from Fort Stewart, the Combat Readiness Training Center, Townsend Bombing Range,’’ Freesemann said. “It’s just one more great air and, really, land asset we have here in [the Coastal Georgia] area for our military to use to train.’’
