The channel under the Woodland Avenue Bridge was becoming too shallow for safe boat navigation. Riprap and embankment material was sliding into the channel. In addition, the channel alignment had a deflection that made sight lines to boat traffic difficult.

Bolton & Menk developed a solution to slide a three-sided, precast concrete box culvert under the bridge to improve channel depth, stabilize the embankment, and straighten the channel alignment. The channel now has improved access for boats traveling between Fairmont’s Chain of Lakes.

Named one of the very best workplaces in the State of Minnesota! We’re proud to rank in the Top 50 on the list, and even prouder that we were voted in by our own employees.
