11/9/2012 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- The Hannah Road project is scheduled to be completed this week, with plans to re-open the road Nov. 13. The road has been closed since Aug. 26.

The project included replacing drainage culverts and repaving a portion of a bridge to eliminate a bump in the road

Heavy equipment operators, "Dirt Boyz" from the 78th Civil Engineer Group's Horizontal Shop, completed all of the work, resulting in significant savings. It was one of the shop's largest projects of the year.

"By doing this work in-house, we saved about $80,000 over the cost of a contract," said Scott Hastings, 78th Civil Engineer Squadron director. "We had a delay due to some unforeseen sight conditions, but due to the engineering ingenuity of our workforce, we were able to come up with a great redesign during construction. Everyone in this shop had a piece in the project."

Hannah Road connects the eastern portion of the base with nearby service areas such as the golf course and fitness center.
