The road work we do gives our people the opportunity to experience first-hand the ways in which America’s roadways connect us to each other…to those things that enable prosperity…and to those hidden natural treasures that bring us joy. We dedicate these Side Trip vignettes to the men and women working in the public and private sector across this beautiful country of ours who have welcomed us into their communities.
Golf in Northeastern Florida
While on the road for PTI, one of the many downtime activities enjoyed by our Southern Operations Construction Manager, Mike Faustini, is golf – and according to Mike, there is no more rewarding place to play than at the Construction Career Days Golf Tournament in Northeast Florida.
Jekyll Island, GA
There are beaches….and then there are beaches. Jekyll Island was once named by Architectural Digest “the most beautiful small town in America.” With that kind of reputation, it’s no surprise that PTI’s Senior Supervisor Chuck McNamee found his way there when passing through the area.
Lexington-Fayette County, KY
PTI crews spend a lot of time in the State of Kentucky. Some of the hardier crew members, like PTI’s Senior Supervisor Chuck McNamee, use their days off to hike the challenging trails in nearby Daniel Boone National Forest.
Smoky Mountains, NC
PTI Supervisor Norm Sabol and crew member Tom Donegan are friends as well as co-workers. On their time off, they love to go hiking. According to both men, the Smoky Mountains in North Carolina are an ideal spot for a weekend adventure.
Hillsborough County, FL
North of Tampa in the Northeast corner of Hillsborough County is bike-friendly Hillsborough River State Park. PTI’s Senior Supervisor Chuck McNamee saw this park referenced in a field mushroom guide book and decided to make a visit.
