Water/Wastewater Projects
BEBOs Provide Wildlife Safe Passage Over Busy Highway  Read More

Trapper's Point Wildlife Overpass

WYDOT Highway 191 - Trapper's Point
Pinedale, Wyoming - After a study found that the pronghorn antelope's migration route had been severely affected by increased traffic along U.S. Highway 191 in the area of Trapper's Point, a solution was needed. In order to provide a safer route for both wildlife and vehicles, the WYDOT chose two BEBO® Bridge Concrete Arch Systems — 66’ x 24’ x 150’ and 78’ x 27’-10” x 150’ in size — to serve highway traffic below and wildlife corridors above. These structures were chosen for their ability to be installed rapidly with minimal disruption to highway traffic and the animal's migration.

DuroMaxx Recycles Wastewater Stored in Lagoons  Read More

City of Culver Lagoon

City of Culver Effluent Storage Lagoon
Culver, Oregon - The City of Culver, Oregon was in need of a better solution to recycle and reuse the wastewater stored in their lagoons, so that they would still be able to accomplish land disposal. The City selected DuroMaxx® steel reinforced polyethylene (SRPE) to provide the needed storage unit for both its durability as well as its economic advantage over solid wall high density polyethlene (HDPE).

Keystone Compac II Units Lead Road Improvement Project  Read More

88th Street

NE 88th Street Improvement
Vancouver, Washington -  When daily traffic along the two-lane stretch of NE 88th Street — running from Highway 99 East to NE St. John’s Road — became too congested, Clark County decided it was time for a major improvement. Plans included widening the road and the addition of 38 different retaining walls. Adhering to specifications from the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), Clark County chose 30,000 square feet of KeySystem II (KeyGrid) as the solution for its ability to be built in a near vertical setback (0.25” per 8” course) maximizing the space available to widen the road.

Magellan Treats Wastewater at Industrial Facility Expansion  Read More

Monogram Snacks

Monogram Snacks Industrial Facility
Martinsville, Virginia - When Monogram Snacks purchased an existing industrial facility, it was necessary to upgrade the system to meet new requirements. As a solution, a Magellan Wastewater Treatment System was chosen for its ability to be readily implemented without the need for substantial infrastructure changes and expansions. It also offered sustainable treatment capability for less initial capital cost, and the steel reinforced polyethylene vessel was recognized as being superior to concrete and steel.

Continental Replaces Structure Washed Out During Flood  Read More

Sweetwater Creek

Sweetwater Creek State Park
Lithia Springs, Georgia - When intense flooding occured at Sweetwater Creek Park, it destroyed an existing truss bridge, breaking an important connection along the trail. Chosen for its quality and economical aspect, a 10’ x 200’ Gateway® style, Continental® truss bridge with a weathering steel finish and wood decking was selected as the best replacement option. The quick installation of the new structure restored the trail connection in a timely manner with minimal disturbance to the site.

Truss Bridges Aid Ecological Restoration  Read More

Hendrix Branch

Hendrix Branch Ecological Restoration
Conway, Arkansas - An ecologocal restoration project underway in a mixed-use development area, known as The Village at Hendrix, required a vehicular and a pedestrian bridge to cross the streams and wetlands in the area. A 45’ x 32’ modified bowstring-style, Vehicular Truss bridge with a concrete deck and a 80’ x 8’ Capstone®-style, Continental® truss bridge provided passage for vehicles and pedestrians from The Village to the commercial area nearby. Both structures were chosen for their cost efficiency and inherent aesthetic appeal.

CON/SPAN Conveys Stormwater Without Flooding Trail Below  Read More

Brantner Gulch at Holly Street

Brantner Gulch at Holly Street
Thornton, Colorado - When several flooding events caused Brantner Gulch to overtop Holly Street, a structure was needed to convey a 100-year storm event and provide a pedestrian underpass to allow safe travel for the trail below. A 24' x 11' x 90' CON/SPAN® B-Series Bridge System was selected as the solution for its ability to provide sufficient crest length to collect and convey stormwater runoff without flooding the trail below.

BridgeCor Replaces Undersized Fish Passage  Read More

Pierre Creek

Pierre Creek Culvert Replacement
Boyds, Washington - In the Kettle Falls area of the 1.1-million acre Colville National Forest, an undersized fish passage was in need of replacement. The U.S. Forest Service chose a 21’-6” x 7’-3” x 56'-3" BridgeCor® corrugated-steel box culvert for its ability to provide a safe crossing for the heavy-load trucks traveling to local mills above and a bottomless, environmentally friendly passage below for fish.

CON/SPAN Detention System Contained Under Parking Lot  Read More

URD West Milwaukee

Urban Redevelopment District - West Milwaukee
West Milwaukee, Wisconsin - During the construction/renovation of a 20-acre Urban Redevelopment District, the stormwater management plan needed to be addressed. As mandated by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, redevelopment projects require a 40% Total Suspended Solids reduction in stormwater leaving the project. Due to the urban setting, a “conventional” detention pond was not an option. Instead, a 32’ x 13’ x 827’ CON/SPAN® Detention System was chosen as the solution because it could be contained beneath the parking lot.
