We are recruiting for project managers (PMs) for our Barlow construction office and our Beaverton construction office to direct construction and contract administration of highly complex highway projects.

It will accommodate a south-bound and a north-bound auxiliary lane, replace SW Hall Blvd. overcrossing structure, build a collector-distributor road, modify interchanges, and include in-water work periods for new water quality treatment facilities. Right-of-way acquisition and extensive public outreach and stakeholder engagement during construction are expected. For more information about this project, please see the following links:
