March 8, 2022 – EM crews replaced a large culvert along a road at the West Valley Demonstration Project (WVDP) where heavy equipment will transport waste containers during the teardown of the Main Plant Process Building.
Starting demolition of that facility is an EM 2022 priority. Crews with WVDP prime contractor CH2M HILL BWXT West Valley (CHBWV) used a 235‐ton crane to place each section of the culvert safely, and an excavator to install the pieces that provide end support for the culvert superstructure.
“The completion of this culvert project was the result of proper planning, teamwork and safe execution from the dedicated individuals who work at the site,” said Paul Fintak, CHBWV subcontractor technical support. “This new culvert will ensure that this roadway remains safe and can handle heavy‐duty equipment for current and future cleanup operations.” Link to Update
