alaska_suttonHamilton was contracted to build the bridges along Segment 4 of the new 32-mile rail line. Segment 4 included the construction of approximately eight miles of new railroad embankment, installation of three new ballast deck railway bridges, and a fish passage culvert. A total of 14 spans were built during winter months making this project logistically challenging in its remote location.
