Unique site conditions, including restricted construction access points, archaeological concerns, T&E species, and the need maintain recreational boating traffic at all times required complex construction staging, significant coordination with environmental and government agencies, and in-depth community involvement through a Design Advisory Committee (DAC) of local stakeholders.
