Project Details

AAC served as the Design/Builder to install the final treaty fishing access sites. The project included design and construction of 3 breakwaters surrounding a new boat ramp and precast floating dock, campsites with facilities, paved roadway and parking lot, landscaping and environmental remediation at 2 sites. AAC also constructed a steel girder bridge that spans over 3 Union Pacific tracks. Constant coordination and collaboration was required between US Army Corps of Engineers, Union Pacific Railway, Oregon Parks Department, designers, tribal members and over 15 subcontractors. AAC also negotiated a historic project agreement that included 5 tribes. The project was completed 2 months ahead of schedule. The in-water work period was from November 15 through March 15. All the dredging, breakwater, cast in place boat ramp, precast concrete floating dock, and offsite remediation work was completed during this cold and windy season.
"During the many contracts I've had with AADS, I have found your employees, both administrative and those in field operations, to be professional and helpful. They are committed to providing us with the best service possible. I believe that this is an outstanding example of the concept of 'Partnering'."
