May 1, 2017 – We have successfully completed the drilling work required for levee evaluations in MCDD and SDIC. All of the drilling combined added up to about 9,000 feet – which is like drilling a hole from the top of Mt. St. Helens down to below sea level. Average traffic delays for Marine Drive lane closures were 2-3 minutes. The project was completed on schedule and under budget.

We’d like to thank the Columbia Corridor Association, the Portland Freight Committee, the City of Portland, the City of Gresham, the City of Troutdale, the City of Fairview, and Multnomah County for being excellent partners and working with us to make this project a success.
