Public Works

C. A. Carey specializes in civil work and proudly stands behind the multitude of our completed projects. Though we have a reputation as a bridge builder, we undertake any project with a civil component. We are proud to service our public clients and bring integrity to the Northwest’s civil construction.

Coal Creek Parkway

Curtis had to build a working platform that would hold up a cable crane big enough to hold up the crane and an oscillator that could drill 7′ shafts. This large bridge was a challenging project that turned out very successful.

White River Dam

PSE owns this backflow preventer that keeps Lake Tapps from backing up the White River. The dam was a significant job for us, and we appreciated working with the great owner. Thanks JB.

Everett Performing Arts Center

This difficult park was another Curtis job and the work produced another happy client. We even received an award for the concrete. The beautiful flatwork was done by our friends from Emils.

Howard Hansen Dam

Originally built as part of a new fish passage, the existing hole was 100′ deep and required us to build a concrete wall all the way up. Our superintendent Marvin came up with a terrific idea: fill the hole in. Thousands and thousands of yards later, we had a safe and stable platform from which to drill our rock anchors and form to complete the Dam.

4th Ave. Arterial Improvements

This road paving job was a complete rebuild of 2nd and 4th Avenue in downtown Seattle. Significant traffic and pedestrian issues created their own set of challenges. We finished on time and within budget and were pleased that we had the City of Seattle as a partner.

Boston Shelby Noise Wall

This retaining wall project was a Jeff Bailey job requiring drilling, craning and setting of precast panels 30′ tall next to I-5.
