One of our Project Managers, Russell Kent, recently visited the latest Low-Water-Crossing replacement to be constructed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Our Construction Specialist, Chad Capra, and Structural Engineer, Greg Delano, also went along for the ride. They were able to see (and climb) these giant water bladders that hold 60,000 gallons of water. These structures are water-tight and act as temporary dams to divert West Cache creek during removal of the existing low water crossing and until the replacement 6-cell 10’x6’ RCB bridge structure is constructed. The new crossing will provide safe passage across West Cache Creek and ensure access to Fort Sill’s west ranges are maintained during all weather conditions. This project is being constructed by Southwind Construction, Downey Contracting and PWE Construction for the US Army Corps. Of Engineers, Tulsa District.
