Vecellio & Grogan is constructing over seven miles of bypass in Rockingham, NC, part of a new four-lane, median-divided freeway (future I-73/I-74 bypass). V&G’s $146-million project includes six box culverts integral to ensuring proper drainage for the new roadway. The last to be built is a triple-box culvert, partially visible in the center of this photo. The project’s vast amount of excavation — 7.3 million cu. yds. — includes about 80 ft. of fill to bring this entire area up to road grade, after completion of the underground utilities work.


V&G recently completed subcontract work on a new section of Wekiva Parkway north of Orlando. Ranger Construction also worked on the three-mile section. Construction included three bridges at Wildlife Crossing #1 and two bridges at Tree Frog Court.

Vecellio & Grogan Picks Up Another NW Florida Project Vecellio & Grogan continues to grow its business in Florida, including the northwest Panhandle area. The company recently received a $21.8-million contract to replace a US-90 (FL-10) bridge over Simpson River in Santa Rosa County. Work is scheduled to begin in January 2022, with a timeline of just over three years for project completion. Also in northwest Florida, V&G is building a pedestrian underpass beneath US-98 at CR-30A in East Inlet Beach (photo at far right). The project, which includes tunnel lighting and ADA-compliant access ramps, will help improve safety in the area. A project for the South Florida Water Management District is also helping to address safety issues. The company has an $11.8-million contract to restore and expand stormwater treatment areas in Belle Glade to help improve the cleanup of runoff before it reaches the Everglades, and provide a safe environment for wildlife living in and around the man-made wetlands. The year-long project began in May 2021.

Near Orlando, V&G has completed work on Wekiva Parkway (photos above), while continuing to build structures for 16 miles of Brightline railroad bed (see next page). In Polk County, crews are doing bridge work on Polk Parkway (below). In St. Lucie County, V&G was low bidder recently on an Intracoastal Bridge replacement project for $111 million. V&G is finishing multiple projects in West Virginia, while crews are working on an I-81 bridge project in Radford, VA, and a Rockingham Bypass project in North Carolina (front cover and page 2).

Hal Jones Contractor has construction projects underway at several locations along St. Johns River in downtown Jacksonville, FL, addressing bulkhead deterioration and expanding dock capacity. A bulkhead replacement project continues along the Northbank Riverwalk area, behind the Times Union Center for the Performing Arts (photos above and right). A total of 650 feet of bulkhead are being replaced, with completion due in March 2022. Hal Jones crews previously replaced 1,500 feet of floating docks in the Riverwalk area. Not far to the west, crews are adding more floating docks near Jackson Street, to be completed by February 2022, while across the river on the Southbank, expansions to the east and west floating docks near Riverplace Tower have been completed. In other Hal Jones work, crews have installed the last test pile for the company’s Jacksonville Beach Pier replacement project (photos below). Nearly all the caps have been installed, while beams continue to be placed, along with decking and utilities. On Banana River near Cape Canaveral, crews worked with Florida Power & Light as they upgraded transmission lines, installing taller power poles for the improvement. Eighteen poles measuring 165-ft. in height, with bases 55-ft. in length and 84-in. in diameter, were installed as part of phase one. Phase two involved removing the old, 115-ft. poles, along with five 24-in. concrete piles that formed the bases.
