In the summer of 2016, a major bridge on Highway 6 near Edwards required replacement. A temporary bridge was installed next to the existing bridge and traffic was transferred for the duration of the project. The existing bridge was removed and replaced with a stronger and wider bridge. The creek bed below was enhanced with rip rap for protection. Traffic was then moved to the new bridge and the area the temporary bridge sat was restored to natural vegetation.
In the summer of 2015, Ewing Trucking & Construction realigned and extended Elk Track Road in Beaver Creek, Colorado. This project included new road grading, installation of storm sewer drainage and a sediment pond, and the construction of MSE retaining walls ranging from 10 to 18 feet tall.
In the fall of 2013, replacement of the pedestrian bridge took place. This bridge allowed hikers and recreational users access to hiking trails in the White Water National Forest near Sylvan Lake State Park. This project included new concrete footers and riparian improvements. Also included was the addition of new restroom facilities.
In the summer of 2015, a major project to replace the bridge spanning Brush Creek on Hwy 6 west of Eagle, Colorado began. The extensive earthwork for this required 15,000 yards of material hauled in to create a temporary detour bridge. A new concrete box culvert was installed on Hockett Gulch and drainage ditches were improved. The existing bridge was removed and replaced with a longer and wider bridge. The detour bridge and temporary roadway was then removed.
In the summer of 2008, a new road was constructed in the Town of Gypsum. This new 1.5 miles of road created an alternative route from Highway 6 to Cooley Mesa. The project also included the installation of water and sewer utilities as well as a sidewalk.
In the summer of 2016, the bike path I was extended from the Town of Avon at the Beaver Creek entrance along Highway 6 to Stonebridge Road. In order to build this new section of path, 5 different retaining walls were constructed using Redi-Rock blocks. This path was built in close proximity to the Eagle River and essential extensive erosion control was required.
In the fall of 2017, the task of eliminating the whoop-di-dos on the heavily trafficked section of US highway 6 between Eagle and Gypsum needed to be completed as quickly as possible. A section 4 feet deep, 450 feet long, and the width of both lanes was excavated and replaced with new material. This allowed for better drainage so the uneven settling would not return in the future. The road was repaved and traffic returned to normal pattern.
In the summer of 2017, the task of creating 6.5 miles of new bike path began. The path extends from The Town of Eagle, east, to Horn Ranch Open Space. This is a design build project with collaboration from Ewing Trucking & Construction, Town of Eagle and Eagle County Open Space.
