In 2016 a good friend of mine, Marty Hedrick, approached me and asked if I would be interested in doing a joint venture project with him in the town of Wytheville. The project was by far one of the biggest things he and I had ever done but with our combined expertise and experience, we were up for the challenge! Freedom Lane is a housing development for veterans in the town of Wytheville, owned and operated-by Wythe Rural Housing Authorities. Hendrick’s excavating and R&R Enterprises took on the challenge of developing the site which consisted of rock removal, site prep, building footings, installing water mains, sewer mains, storm drains, sediment ponds, finish grading, and seeding and straw. The project was finished on time and has been a huge success for the veterans in our community. Within just a matter of months after completion all the homes were filled with veterans that needed a place to live. We would like to thank all the veterans for their service making this a great place to live and work.
