Going The Extra Miles

The Texas Flat Road project was a challenge for Project Manager Les Dungan of Dungan Engineering for several reasons. The project traversed approximately 13 miles along an existing gravel road and connected Highways 607 and 603. The route provided easier access to the Stennis Airport and main entrance in Hancock County, Mississippi. The terrain was low lying and flat, making the design of the roadway base, as well as, the surface drainage particularly challenging. The project was completed on time and within budget in spite of the terrain challenges. Dungan Engineering provided engineering services related to all phases of the project from planning, design, construction engineering and inspection.
