Kenco’s Solution for Open Roads
While the length of the entire project took about two weeks from start to finish, Kenco was contracted for the two-day move across 70 miles in wintery eastern Iowa. Kenco’s bucket truck escorts assisted in lifting telephone, cable TV and non-electric utility lines, as well as other roadside and aerial obstacles.
“With a load this large, every 90-degree corner takes one to two hours to complete, and as we got closer to the site, the roads became narrower,” explained the client. “Working with Kenco allowed us to use just one company instead of contacting each telephone or cable company that owned the lines over the route. With Kenco’s help, there were fewer trucks and people on the road.”
Even with a one-day delay in the middle of the route because of a storm that dumped four inches of snow on the region, the project was completed safely and ahead of schedule.
“It was a lot easier to complete the project on schedule when we hired Kenco,” the client said. “They came highly recommended and are well-known in our business. They were great to work with.”
