Ralston Viaduct

The Ralston Viaduct replaced a 1,000-foot stretch of bridge and pavement on a 4-lane divided highway where the limits of Ralston and Omaha meet on 84th Street. The project was scheduled for 3 phases in the 2017 through 2019 construction seasons. The first half was completed ahead of schedule in 2017, for which Hawkins earned full incentive from the owner, the Nebraska Department of Transportation. The final phase of the project was completed in the 2018 season, eliminating the need for 2019 construction.

"Hawkins Construction Company has been a vital partner in building some of Nebraska's most iconic transportation projects — like the West Dodge elevated expressway and the Interstate 80 six-lane between Omaha and Lincoln. Hawkins’ teams consistently help solve problems on-site, create accurate documents, and minimize unnecessary changes — all at extremely competitive prices.”
