MCDD ditch safety project completed

Date: July 23, 2021
Categories: Project Updates

As part of a worker safety upgrade and regulatory compliance project, the Multnomah County Drainage District was granted approval of an Environmental Review covering five site development areas for:

  • Re-grading existing grade and placing gravel for an approach used for worker access
  • Installation of fall protection structures (concrete vaults) to be placed over the upstream edge of the existing culverts
  • Temporary excavation below the culverts to place gravel below the vaults
  • Railing installation on the platforms of the vaults
  • Improvements of access paths to the structures, including installation of stairs
  • Temporary staging areas and construction access
  • Permanent fill around the structures to provide bank stability and smooth hydraulic transitions

We were excited to see the final product Mid-July!

We have a long history of working with the Multnomah County Drainage District, and we have some of our more elaborate projects outlined in our portfolio.
