North Jetty crew marks project completion

Pictured are a few of the men and women who rebuilt the Mouth of the Columbia River’s North Jetty. The project was accepted by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District on Nov. 12. According to a Facebook post by general contractor J.E. McAmis, the project entailed 40 people, four rock quarries, 70-plus blasts, 21 barge loads, 190,000-plus tons (380 million pounds) of rock, and 187,000 accident-free man hours. Work was completed a full year ahead of schedule. “Thank you to all subs, suppliers, employees, and especially USACE Colter Bennett (COR), and Aaron Anderson (project manager/superintendent),” the company said.
