Loon Mountain Bridge Opens Four Months Ahead of Schedule!

The Loon Mountain Bridge is officially open!  It has been a long time coming, but the Town of Lincoln opened the bridge to vehicles on July 22, 2016.  Senator Jeanne Shaheen visited the newly opened bridge on August 16 during her visit to the North Country.  The original bridge was damaged by Tropical Storm Irene in 2011 and since that time the entry to the Loon Mountain Resort has been over a temporary bridge.  The temporary bridge has since been removed and R.M. Piper, Inc. is working to remove the old bridge and stabilize the river banks.  Final completion is expected to be in January.   For more information about this project, contact Chris Fournier, PE at (603) 356-6936 or cfournier@hebengineers.com.

HEB Donates Services for Kennett High School Baseball Field

Josh McAllister, HEB Vice President & Senior Civil Engineer, had first-hand knowledge of how much the Robert Burns Sr. Varsity Baseball Field needed to be renovated.  In addition to his leadership role at HEB, Josh is the Kennett High School varsity baseball coach and has witnessed problems with the field throughout his time coaching. HEB donated engineering services to redesign the baseball field so it can drain more effectively, creating a more playable surface.  LA Drew, Inc., also donating part of its services, was awarded the project and is currently completing the renovation.  More detail is included in this Conway Daily Sun article.  For more information on this project, you may contact Josh McAllister, PE, at jmcallister@hebengineers.com or (603) 356-6936.

Stark Covered Bridge Wins New Hampshire Preservation Award

We are so pleased that our Stark Covered Bridge rehabilitation project has been awarded a 2016 NH Preservation Alliance award!  One of 11 awards given last week, this historic bridge preservation project has been a great experience for HEB.  We worked collaboratively with the Town of Stark and Austin Construction LLC to rehabilitate 'the most photographed bridge in New Hampshire' to current safety standards while maintaining its unique historic character.  Construction was completed in 2015. 

The project also received an ACEC-NH 'Engineering Excellence' award this past spring as well as an honorable mention in the ACEC national competition.
