Hamilton served as the general contractor managing the project and building the structures on this high-traffic and environmentally sensitive project. The scope included the replacement of six bridges on I-5 including two over the McKenzie River in highly sensitive habitats and popular recreational areas, as well as reconstructing a complex interchange at Goshen. Due to the endangered species surrounding the project area, our team had to work within very demanding in water work windows. Despite the challenge, the project opened to traffic six months ahead of schedule.
“These are well-executed bridges that improve conditions for Townsend’s big-eared bats, salmon and steelhead,” said Ron Anglin, ODFW Wildlife Division administrator. “Working with individuals that exhibit the level of dedication and concern for wildlife that Hamilton Construction does is gratifying.”
