Harbor Co., located in Las Vegas, was asked to bid on a manhole frame adjustment project on the Strip, and the company jumped at the chance.
The rules of engagement were strict. The work would commence at 2 a.m. and had to be complete by 10 a.m. the same day. This required a quick cutting and removal of the existing structures as well as a quick and accurate rebuild.
The company used the Mr. Manhole system to accelerate the operation. The cutter operates on a skid steer and allows the operator to remove the manhole frame from the road quickly with minimum labor. The system allows a quick rebuild using a plastic liner and a poured-in-place concrete ring.
Harbor Co. adjusted five manholes in the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Avenue in one night. The cutter was used to remove all five manholes in one hour. The newly adjusted frames were concreted in by 5 a.m., using a fast-setting concrete, and traffic was allowed back on the street by 9:30 a.m.
