Dear C.A. Hull Team,

As September is upon us, our projects are in full swing and work will continue to be extremely busy in order to complete before winter sets in. We appreciate everyone’s efforts adapting to the slow start to the year and the changes/delays that have occurred on numerous jobs. Together we will work on over 30 projects and 125 bridges across 19 counties this year!

Dear Teammates,

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2019!  I’d like to take this opportunity to highlight some of the things we have been working on since last fall.

MDOT was very slow in letting out projects to bid last fall.

As 2017 ends and I look back on the year we’ve had I’m stunned by the successes!  A few that come to mind include:

We worked a record number of man-hours. We had zero lost time injuries and a drastic reduction in the number of recordable and first-aid incidents. We developed new tools in the field to make our work safer and more efficient. We worked together better than ever before by sharing resources, knowledge, and ideas across all the projects. We won and... Read More
