Nez_Perce_customerOn Thursday, August 2″‘,2007 Pacific Bridge & Construction, Inc. of Sandy, Oregon completed construction of the reference project utilizing their patented Modular Precostonstruction Concrete Small Stream Bridge system. They had mobilize Monday morning of that some week  72 hours later they were pocked up and heading bock home.

I hove never hod the occasion to work with such o great bunch of guys. They oil were friendly,polte, cooperative and knowledgeable. Gene Copher and I talked often during oil stages of the project. He was always friendly, cooperative and easy to work with . He was right in there with the rest of the crew during construction. Steve laid out the bridge,performed oil excavation end set the bridge components . The crew on the ground knew exact y what to do and when to do it. They worked together like a well-oiled machine, oil the while enjoying their work. Very impressive !

Their product is equally os impressive. The project was very inexpensive, cheoper than any culvert project we hove done lately.  The bridge components were easi y installed, required very little time and the project caused minimal impacts to the stream and surrounding habitat.  Their motto, “The Fish Friendly Solution”, says it all.
