Mark C. Honeywell Swimming Pool

United’s Water and Wastewater Department provided engineering services for upgrades to the Mark C. Honeywell Swimming Pool in Wabash, Indiana.

Overall, the $2 million construction project included replacing the junior pool with a new zero-depth entry pool with spray features and constructing a new equipment building to serve the new zero-depth entry pool. Upgrades to the larger existing pool were also included in the project, bringing both pools up to code and making them ADA compliant.

New features of the Mark C. Honeywell Swimming Pool renovation included the installation of an ADA lift, ADA compliant stairs, stainless steel gutters with integral water supply, new concrete deck, floor drains, diving boards, structural repairs, and lifeguard chairs. In addition, the concrete deck and fencing around the pool area were replaced and the floors in the locker rooms were coated.

The original Honeywell Swimming Pool opened to the public on May 30, 1961.

 

Senate Bill 333 – Transportation Funding

Michael Testimony

Senate Bill 333 (SB 333) is a comprehensive transportation funding bill which provides an earmark to provide an additional $42 million from the Indiana regional cities development fund for the purpose of funding a third grant under the regional cities initiative.

United’s Transportation Manager, Michael Rowe, testified on behalf of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Indiana in support of a long-term funding solution for Indiana’s roads and bridges to the Road and Transportation Committee, chaired by Representative Ed Soliday. The hearing specifically addressed  SB 333 which supports a short-term increase in funding and is intended to provide an interim solution for the long-term road funding issue.

Properly maintained Indiana roads will reduce the overall cost of the roadway system and the vehicular costs to the roadway users. If passed, the bill will save money in the long run while improving the pavement and bridge conditions.
