Multi-district Repair

Hawkins Construction completed roadway repairs to 28 different project sites throughout two districts of the Nebraska Department of Roads. Spread out over 10 counties in eastern Nebraska, these sites required grading, removal, and guardrail replacement due to years of weathering. Fourteen of the sites required bridge repair, and two needed box culvert repairs.

Hawkins overcame the significant logistical challenges of these multiple project sites by self-performing most of the work with a crew capable of completing multidisciplinary work. Originally scheduled for three years, the fast-tracked construction schedule resulted in completing the contract more than a year and a half early.

“Hawkins Construction Company has brought ideas to the District for both cost savings as well as scheduling to keep projects both on time and on budget. To help do this they make time early in the project for both collaborative value engineering as well as learning the intricacies of our projects to avoid potential schedule problems. This understanding of the project helps them with the management of subcontractors and makes for a more organized construction process.”
