SR520 Incident
Posted On: Jun 03, 2021

It is with a heavy heart that we report the loss of a Brother Operator on the SR 520 project last night.  We aren’t releasing any details out of respect for the family and the safety investigation that is underway.  We are deeply saddened by the loss and our thoughts and prayers go out to the family, friends, and his fellow coworkers on the site. 

While a tragic accident, it is another example of the danger that exists on any construction site.  Be vigilant and conscientious of your surroundings and be safe out there in the field Brothers and Sisters.    

Any Operator needing assistance during this tragic time is encouraged to reach out to their Field Representative or Josh Swanson. 

My condolences to the family for their tragic loss.
