Lolo Pass Road / Zig Zag Bridge
Zig Zag, Oregon
I think the most rewarding job for me was the work we completed on Lolo Pass Road and at the Zig Zag Bridge. Virtually all the work we do is related to new development or reconstructing of an existing site. The emergency repairs we were involved in, after the flooding on Mt. Hood, were much more rewarding. Not only did we provide access for families that had been trapped in their homes for over a week, but we did it during very adverse conditions in the middle of winter. Completing this work took dedication from the team and commitment to succeed beyond the things we typically do. Moving a river is not something you do every day and probably only once in a lifetime. There were no new buildings when we were done but that job made a real difference to the people in that community. It’s not often in this industry that you get a standing ovation for doing your work. On that job, we did. That’s why we do what we do – we make a difference!
