Mountain Home AFB // Facility Installation

 

Track Utilities, LLC was contracted to install new underground facilities and remove existing overhead lines at the Mountain Home Air Force Base.

Stringent government safety policies and construction specifications, coupled with high-security concerns, made for a complex situation requiring great attention to detail and exceptional teamwork. Utilizing the assistance of the bore division and a directional bore this project was successfully brought to completion with minimal disruption to the activities on the Air Base.

In just over three months we completed this contact with a very satisfied customer, thus continuing our great working relationship with Mountain Home Air Force Base.

Idaho Power // Pleasant Valley Substation

 

Idaho Power contracted Track Utilities, LLC to install new underground get-aways out of their Pleasant Valley substation and to rebuild three miles of 34.5 single and double circuit electrical lines.

This job took place in a high-traffic area and was technically very complex. All the work on this project was performed with the lines energized due to loading concerns. This required strict adherence to safety protocol, continuous caution, and exceptional teamwork. The crews dealt with the daily challenge of working in cold winter conditions, as well as rocks in most of the post hole excavations. A Texoma pressure digger was brought in to mitigate the issue with the rocks. One five-man crew utilizing a job truck, line bed, two distribution buckets, a rope puller and a tensioner completed the contract in about two and a half months.

Our team completed this contract without any unexpected outages or project interruptions. It was finished on time and within budget leaving the customer very satisfied.  

Farmers Mutual Telephone Company // Fiber to the Home

 

Track Utilities, LLC was contracted in 2016 by Farmers Mutual Telephone Company to work on a large Fiber to the Home project in Fruitland, Idaho. This project placed approximately 36,000 feet of a mix of one to three 1.25 inch inner ducts and utilized trenching, boring and plowing. 

We started construction in early fall with the fiber being placed in early winter. Both subcontractors and Track Utilities employees were used to run 70,800 feet of fiber, varying from 288 to 4 strand, to 483 homes and businesses. We also placed approximately 280 hand holes and pedestals. The biggest challenge associated with this project proved to be coordinating with home owners due to the fact most of this build was in backyard easements and private properties. 

Farmers Mutual is pleased with the progress and the outcome of the project.
