Pelican Main Street Bridge Improvements

Location: Pelican, AK
Project Dates: 2018 – 2019
Owner: AK DOT&PF

This FHWA-funded project is rehabilitating the famous Pelican Boardwalk, replacing dilapidated timber stringers, caps, and cross braces. The project will also replace several timber piles and repair eroded concrete pile footings, work that must be completed while maintaining access for Pelican residents and emergency services. While proHNS Principal Engineer Garret Gladsjo, PE, handles contract management duties from our Juneau office, our Staff Engineer Travis Eckhoff, PE, is on the ground in Pelican providing Project Engineer services. Our Office Engineer Shannon Kelly is remotely handling some office engineering, and will assist with closeout when the project nears completion.
