Two Vecellio companies are working together in central Florida to build a section of FL-429 known as Wekiva Parkway. Ranger Construction is providing excavation, grading, embankment walls and paving services, while Vecellio & Grogan is performing the bridge work, elevating sections of the limited-access highway over four separate wildlife crossings. The six-mile section is part of a northern loop finishing a beltway around greater Orlando, reducing traffic through the heart of the metro area. Superior Construction is the lead contractor on the design-build job. Back in its home state of West Virginia, Vecellio & Grogan is improving about 25 miles of Route 10 in Wyoming County, building lagging walls, adding shoulders and straightening five curves along the two-lane rural roadway. V&G will have just under two years to complete the project, which is valued at $30.8 million.

Leo Vecellio, Jr. Selected For WV Business Hall of Fame When Leo Vecellio, Jr. joined his family’s West Virginia-based road construction firm in 1973, he had a vision to expand into other regions and industries. In the decades that followed, he spearheaded the effort, growing the family’s business interests into one of the nation’s leading privately-owned contracting, mining and energy groups, operating throughout the mid-Atlantic and southeastern U.S., and beyond. At a ceremony later this year, Leo’s many years of business success, industry leadership and extensive philanthropy will be recognized with his induction into the West Virginia Business Hall of Fame. Sponsored by West Virginia University, the Hall

recognizes business leaders who have strong ties to the Mountain State, and have made a significant impact across the business landscape of their local communities, the state, the nation and around the world. Vecellio & Grogan, the flagship company of the Vecellio Group, was founded in 1938 by Leo’s father, grandfather and uncle. Starting with small street paving projects in the Beckley area, the company grew in size and stature, eventually ranking as one of the nation’s busiest highway contractors. Leo grew up in the industry, earned related college degrees, and served as an Air Force officer, before joining the family business and guiding its remarkable growth into the Vecellio Group of today.

Night Shifts Not Unusual On Large Resurfacing Projects Sharpe Bros., a grading, paving and utilities division of Vecellio & Grogan operating in the Greensboro, N.C., area, also regularly performs night-shift milling and paving services. Current projects include more than six miles of work on I-40 near Winston-Salem (shown on page 5).

Contracts for milling and resurfacing work on major roadways often require that services must be performed at night. This aligns the work schedule with the lightest traffic volume, while minimizing disruptions for motorists during the day. It’s all part of a day’s — or night’s — work in the industry. One recent example is a Ranger Construction project in Orlando (shown). As part of work on I-4 at Florida’s Turnpike, Ranger crews, led by Milling Foreman Brett Vaughn and Asphalt Foreman Eric Ungaro, milled and paved a street just off an exit ramp.

The National Asphalt Pavement Association has recognized the work of Ranger Construction in Florida and Sharpe Bros. in North Carolina, bestowing multiple Quality In Construction Awards. For projects under 50,000 tons of asphalt, Ranger received QIC awards for its work on Military Trail in Palm Beach County and US-27 in Broward County, while its Winter Garden office picked up an award for US-441 improvements in Okeechobee County. Ranger also received awards for its work on projects over 50,000 tons. The Winter Garden office was recognized for improvements made to Florida’s Turnpike in Indian River and Okeechobee Counties, SR-70 in Okeechobee, and US-27 in Clermont.

As market leaders, Ranger Construction and Sharpe Bros. regularly maintain and upgrade their asphalt contracting facilities. Ranger recently upgraded a fuel tank at its Deerfield, Fla., facility, which last year received a third storage silo, while two new silos and a second scale were added to its Miami plant. Sharpe, meanwhile, added a third silo recently at its plant in Kernserville, N.C. The silo additions allow the plants to have a greater variety of mix types on hand, or a higher volume of a specific mix type, such as for resurfacing highway lanes or an airport runway. Ranger owns and operates a half-dozen asphalt plants serving central and south Florida, from the greater Orlando area through Miami. Sharpe has three asphalt plants in and around Greensboro, N.C. Both companies provide asphalt mixes for their own paving crews, as well as FOB sales to other contractors, so their ability to consistently produce high-quality material is vital.

Other projects include night-shift milling and resurfacing on 6.2 miles of I-40 near Winston-Salem (right), three to four lanes in each direction, under a $17.5-million contract with NCDOT.

Also retiring at White Rock was Miguel Rubido, a Sales Loader Operator, with 13 years of service and 30-plus years of experience in the industry. Miguel was known for his responsibility, dependability and safe working habits. He was consistently accurate, loading each truck to the proper weight mandated by FDOT. At Hal Jones Contractor, Ron Smith retired after 19-plus years of valued service. Ron was the company’s Field Engineer, responsible for all field layout work, consisting primarily of structural layout for all bridges, from the substructure through the superstructure.
