Project Description

Demolition and disposal of an existing 106-year-old steel truss span bridge and construction of a 246-foot U-80 bridge replacement was no small feat. Especially when the location was only 300 feet upstream from the main intake of Tacoma Washington’s water supply. This made drinking water a top concern as our team worked diligently to ensure public safety and finished the project within six weeks and ahead of schedule.

  • Lead paint containment through the demolition and disposal of existing bridge
  • Main Line Road to Howard Hansen Dam could only be closed for six weeks
  • Pivetta completed the project 12 days ahead of schedule
