US 441, the primary connection between Gatlinburg, TN and Cherokee, NC reopened this morning after a rockslide forced the closure of the road 90 days ago. Phillips and Jordan, Inc. (P&J) was awarded the repair project in February by the Federal Highways Administration. Scheduled for completion by May 15, P&J earned the entire incentive payment by completing the project a month early.
Ted Phillips, Chairman (third from right) visited the 441 project last Wednesday to congratulate the project team in anticipation of their early completion and for achieving this milestone accident and incident free. Ted was joined by the P&J project team including Edd Satterfield, Project Manager (second from right) and R.A. Luker, Project Superintendent (fourth from right).

On August 24, 1992 Hurricane Andrew hit Dade County, Florida. The devastation this storm left behind would be the worst natural disaster in US history until Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans 13 years later. Phillips and Jordan, Inc. was one of six contractors (“The Big 6″) selected by the Corps of Engineers to perform the recovery effort in Miami/Dade. We mobilized in less than 24 hours, employed over 1,650 people, and contracted for over 750 dump trucks. Ultimately, Phillips and Jordan, Inc. moved in excess of 4,000,000 CY of debris (over 1/3 of the total debris removed by all six contractors) and performed this in less than 90 days.
