Following a busy winter, Melcar brushed the last of the snow off its fleet of HDD rigs in strategy to hit the spring heavily. Hitting heavy, for Melcar, means taking on an ice breaking project, one that sets the new year off right. That is exactly what our team accomplished, by pulling a bundle of 10 - 8 inch conduits under the Garden State Parkway without having traffic miss a beat.
