Constructors Crew to Tackle Cart Path Repairs at Quarry Oaks

Now that the golf season is over, a crew from Constructors led by Jerrad Spoon is on site at Quarry Oaks to tear out and replace several stretches of cart path in need of repair.
“Due to the inherently hilly nature of the Quarry Oaks property and 25 years of sub surface erosion we need to repair several stretches of cart paths on the course”, said Ken Cuddy, Golf Course Superintendent. “We are so fortunate to have this work done in-house by a sister company: Constructors. This same crew has done work out here before and work with great efficiency and knowledge of the course. They also appreciate and understand the delicate turf conditions and take great care to protect the course while getting the work done in a timely manner” Cuddy went on to say. In addition, they will be installing guard rail along some of the new stretches of cart path. Quarry Oaks was able to repurpose rustic timbers from several of the OPPD power poles that were replaced last year to serve as the guard rail. This weathered natural timber look will blend in with the aesthetics of the property while providing a safe cart path for our patrons.
Work began on January 20th and should be done within 30 days.

Project Spotlight: New Running Track at UNL

Constructors paving new running track at University of Nebraska Lincoln

As part of Nebraska’s “Go Big” Athletic Facility project, the Ed Wier Running Track is being replaced with a new outdoor track located north of the Bob Devaney Sports Center. Nemaha Sports Construction, Inc. subcontracted Constructors to perform the asphalt portion of the new track. The new track required 6” of asphalt pavement, amounting to more than 5,000 tons. The smoothness tolerance on a project like this is very tight, requiring a maximum 1/8” deviation, using a 10-foot straight edge. This type of precision asphalt paving is very difficult. Therefore, Constructors’ paving team used stringless pave control to successfully construct a precision pavement for the new running track. By meeting these stringent requirements, the track qualifies to certify world records if one would be set. After a curing period, the track will be coated with a polyurethane elastomer surface in ‘Husker Red’ that will make the track one of the top-rated running tracks in the nation!

2 Landmark Centre Demolition

The Two Landmark Centre office building located in downtown Lincoln on Lincoln Mall and 12th Street has recently been demolished. The property, which was more than 35 years old, is owned by NEBCO and the new building will be leased to the federal government. Through the years it has served as office space for NEBCO employees, Universal Surety and Inland Insurance, and other local businesses.
The new 2 Landmark Centre will be very similar to NEBCO’s 1 Landmark and 3 Landmark which are also on Lincoln Mall. “This project will continue our commitment of excellent architecture and hopefully serve as a catalyst for future developments in south downtown,” mentions Jim Abel. The new building is set to be completed in the summer of 2023.
The companies that assisted in the demolition were Sampson Construction and Peitzmeier Demolition & Concrete Cutting, Inc.

OL&B Completes Y Street Crossing Project

OL&B Completes Y Street Crossing Project

OL&B Railway recently finished up work on replacing the railroad crossing on Y street.
This project was a partnership with the Railroad Transportation Safety District and the City that started back in 2017. They were looking for an improved, long term replacement for the crossing. They wanted to try something new for the possibility of using it in other crossings. The crossing is a pre-cast tub crossing that integrates
the tracks and the road all together instead of being separate. This is the first application of this type of crossing in Nebraska and only the third location in the country for this specific style with the fastening system used. It is designed for simplicity of installation, durability, service life, and to be the smoothest crossing for vehicle traffic.
