Title: Ilani Casino Road Widening
Description: The 354,000 square foot ilani Casino Resort markets itself as the premier destination for gaming, entertainment, retail, and dining in the Pacific Northwest, with an expected 4.5 million visitors annually. It is located 25 miles north of downtown Portland. Goodfelow Bros. (GBI) was the casino's contractor of choice and completed all the site work on this 152-acre development including infrastructure, utilities, grading, and paving. This included 400,000 cubic yards of earthwork, 50,000 feet of underground utilities, and more than 15,000 linear feet of new roads and freeway ramps. Additionally, GBI was responsible for the removal and replacement of the La Center interchange over Interstate 5. Normally a 14-month project, the Cowlitz Indian Tribe wanted it completed in nine months to meet their April deadline for opening. GBI was up for the challenge and assembled day and night crews working six days a week. Footage captured by Mike Brewington.
