#TBT to the 2020 Wallamette Falls Fishway Repair project.

Advanced American Construction was the successful low bidder on The Willamette Falls Fishway Repair project, solicited by the Oregon Department of Fish & Wildlife (ODFW). The project consisted of replacing a failed concrete apron, foundation repairs, concrete repairs, joint sealing, shotcrete stabilization and installation of a stainless steel tenson system.

The project had two primary work locations. One above and one below Willamette Falls on the historic West Linn Papermill site. The massive industrial site created significant challenges for access and material movements. AAC’s marine assets played a key role in overcoming the challenges.

On the downstream site, AAC utilized a ramp barge to move equipment, materials and a drilling subcontractor’s equipment to the site. The drill subcontractor set up and drilled 7” diameter micorpiles to secure a foundation for the existing fishway. Once complete, AAC set reinforcing, forms and poured a concrete pile cap over the new micropiles. AAC’s subcontractor also placed shotcrete over another fishway foundation surrounded by gabion rock baskets in order to stabilize the location.
Repairs to the fishway on the downstream side included cutting relief joints in the concrete flume, installing and torqueing tension brackets to minimize thermal expansion on the fish ladder, installing a joint sealant system in the fishway and general concrete repairs.

The upstream work involved removal and repair of a failed concrete apron on the dam surrounding Willamette Falls. AAC mobilized a 100 Ton crane barge as there is no access from land. The existing damaged fishway was demolished and the site was prepared for concrete work. Due to the significant challenge with access to the site, AAC mobilized a concrete batching operation on barges to pour back the concrete apron.

All work on this contract was performed in a highly sensitive environmental location without any environmental issues, safety incidents or injuries.

It was the end of an era yesterday, when the last piling from the old Port Dock 5 pier was removed. Contractors will now begin fabricating parts of the new pier off-site, so don't be surprised if there's a period of what appears to be inactivity. Work is ongoing. Thanks to all for your continued patience!

This week is a project feature from 2012,

The Lower Monumental Dam Juvenile Bypass System Outfall Pipe Relocation was a fast paced project to remove and replace an existing juvenile bypass system outfall pipe. The project was 6 months from notice to proceed until project completion and included the installation of 3,000 feet of new outfall pipeline, with 500 feet placed in the Snake River.

The outfall portion of the project included the installation of 8 each, 60-inch diameter drill shafts placed in the river. AAC constructed a special barge to facilitate the over water drilling. Special anchoring devices were developed to hold both the barge and drilling casing in place against the fast moving current.

The upland work included 2,000 feet of buried-on-grade HDPE pipe. Sections of the pipe were placed 15 feet below final grade, a large amount of earthwork was required to facilitate the installation. The pipe conveys live salmon smolt, so grade and internal smoothness of the finished HDPE pipe were critical.

#TBT To the Temco-Kalama Shiploader Er****on and Loadout in 2014.

AAC transported the Temco shiploader components including the towers and cradles from the Columbia Business Center via AAC barge and tug to Temco’s facility in Kalama, WA. AAC then handled the rigging, hoisting, and placement of all components at the Temco site, which included a 2-crane pick for the installation of the cross conveyor using the DB Millennium. The cross conveyor measured 300 feet long, 300,000 lbs. and 75 feet in the air.

AAC completed this project from contract to completion with notable efficiency in less than 3 months. We provided comprehensive services including advanced lift design and full installation of the Temco shiploader.

#TBT to the BNSF Bridge 58.8 Bridge Replacement from 2018 – 2019.

Advanced American Construction (AAC) was contracted by #BNSF Railway and #Hamilton Construction to perform the truss changeout of BNSF’s Fallbridge Subdivision Bridge 58.8 over the Wind River located in the Columbia Gorge.

This was an in-line replacement managed by BNSF Heavy Bridge Division utilizing Accelerated Bridge Construction (ABC) techniques in design and construction in order to limit track closure.

In addition to the marine changeout, AAC also performed installation and removal of the drilled shaft drill platforms and complete barge, crane & dock support for the buildup of the new truss at AAC’s Portland yard.

AAC worked together with #Genesis Structures (www.genesisstructures.com/) to utilize AAC’s marine equipment and value engineer the barge transportation of the new truss to the jobsite,
barge ballasting removal of the existing truss and barge strand jacking and installation of the new truss during a compressed railroad outage.

Because of the complexity of the marine tow up through Bonneville Lock and Dam and pool elevations at the jobsite, AAC coordinated closely with USACE Bonneville Dam reservoir control, USCG and local fisheries.

All marine work was completed as planned, safely and without any environmental issues.
