During Construction

After

“We worked with the County of Santa Cruz to create and implement a plan to replace the failed 10-foot CMP culvert with a reinforced concrete box culvert. We also installed a temporary bridge to enable traffic flow for residents and provide access to the local elementary school allowing it to reopen.”
