Central District Highway Heroes Perform
Act of Kindness

HighwayHeroesColumbia Maintenance Supervisor Richard “Skeeter” Skelton and Eldon Maintenance Supervisor Dirk Honeycutt stopped to help an elderly gentleman change a tire on Route 63 in Columbia on Sept. 16.

Skelton and Honeycutt continued with their daily business as usual, but customer Peggy Ashbaugh of Clark noticed the act of kindness. She was even moved to send in an email that read – “I want to thank the two highway workers who helped an elderly gentleman change a tire (on Route 63 in Columbia) … Great job!”

Paving Operation on Route E Huge Success

The district teamed up with contractor NB West to put down 922.11 tons of hot mix overlay in one day during a paving operation on Route E in Auxvasse. Our workers - including District Maintenance Engineer Randy Aulbur (pictured in the second photo below) - handled traffic control, oil operations, hauling and rolling. Thanks to all sheds and employees who made this operation a success!
