How HCSS Software assisted with this project
This project was managed with HeavyJob.
Carolina Bridge Company was asked by the NCDOT to construct the Pea Island Emrgency Bridge, a 662-foot bridge to allow the highway to Pea Island to reopen after the damage from Hurricane Irene. They began mobilizing over Labor Day weekend, and in less than seven days had begun construction with six cranes, 50 very hard-working people, and a lot of lights. The company worked 24/7 for 40 days, completing the 662-foot bridge, two large sheet pile structures, and the road work needed to reopen Highway 12 and reconnect the 70 miles of road cut off by Hurricane Irene.
