Boeing North Bridge Project is a Winner

Boeing uses the bridge to tow 737 airplanes from their Renton assembly plant to the flight line at the Renton Airport.

On Friday, 3 March 2017, BergerABAM’s Boeing North Bridge project was awarded the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute’s (PCI) “Best Special Solution” award in its Transportation category. Presented at the PCI Convention and National Bridge Conference (8 February to 4 March 2017) in Cleveland, Ohio, the award highlights those projects that use innovative solutions to meet the challenge of unique structures.

Port of Toledo Haul-out Pier – Growing the Local Economy

The Port of Toledo boatyard improvements and haul-out pier project is an excellent example of design and construction efficiency.

The Port of Toledo—the port authority for Toledo, Oregon—serves an area that includes the small cities of Toledo (population 3,462) and Siletz (population 1,212), as well as a large area of unincorporated Lincoln County, with facilities located along the Yaquina River. While many small towns have struggled and been left behind as the economy has improved, the Port made the positive move to obtain a ConnectOregon grant to improve their infrastructure and increase their variety of services to develop and sustain the area’s economy.
