Published by Hank Gottschalk

Because of a sinkhole that developed on the airfield at Joint Base Andrews in Prince Georges County, Maryland, Asher Construction Inc. took on an emergency repair project requiring 160 Liner Feet of Special Design 84 inch Diameter RCP (Reinforced Concrete Pipe). CP&P’s Jessup facility produced the Special 84 inch Diameter Pipe, meeting their needed delivery date beginning in September and finishing with the final loads arriving the first week of October.

Joint Base Andrews (JBA) is a United States military facility located in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The facility is under the jurisdiction of the United States Air Force 316th Wing, Air Force District of Washington (AFDW). The base was established in 2009, when Andrews Air Force Base and Naval Air Facility Washington were merged.
