Sandy Pointe South Bridge

A new housing development in Ashland, NE – Sandy Pointe Lake Development – needed a functional and aesthetic bridge to cross the channel that connected to the lake. Hawkins Construction was hired to construct a precast concrete arch with cast-in-place concrete footings and wingwalls.

They don’t call it Sandy Pointe for nothing. All of the soils in this project were actually sand – adding layer of complexity to the project. Hawkins worked to satisfy the Owner’s needs during the construction process, and successfully executed this 81-day project under budget and on schedule.

“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.”
