KCC is well-versed in heavy civil construction, planning and constructing the infrastructure we rely on every day.
The necessity for continued investment to upkeep infrastructure for the general public and industry has never been greater. Our heavy civil construction capabilities include but are not limited to roads, bridges, highways, site work, and excavation. Our growing list of successfully completed bridge and road construction projects are the result of employing skilled trade workers, exceptional safety practices, and our value-engineering methodology.

Due to its age, there had been deterioration as well as chipping and cracking that could no longer be addressed by routine maintenance. The intent of the new bridge was to build a similar structure with modern material and design elements. The project spans across Deal Lake, which presented access obstacles along with the overly soft lakebed soil and required environmental guidelines. The logistical and operational challenges were strategically met and achieved by the KCC’s resources through innovative methods creating support for the concrete structure to ensure a safe and successful outcome.
Even with all of Mother Nature's tests, KCC completed smoothly and successfully.
The stone masonry piers and abutments of several of the bridges were constructed in the early to mid-1800’s with the Route 202 bridge representing the most contemporary of the bridges. The work was performed in ever-changing water conditions from drought and floods to ice build-up and dam formations. Even with all of Mother Nature's tests, KCC completed smoothly and successfully.
The existing two-span/two-lane reinforced concrete bridge over the Wickecheoke Creek was constructed in 1934, and is located in a historically sensitive area adjacent to the Historic D&R Canal and Prallsville Industrial Historic District. There is also strategic importance to the bridge, which required the superstructure rehabilitation work to be performed while traffic was maintained at all times.
