Well building it in 72 hours is a great thing but EPA permits will take 6 months.
“..but EPA permits will take 6 months.” Scratch that, 6 years.
I’m the project manager on a small bridge that crosses a non-fish bearing irrigation return drain. It’s taken over 3 years from initial funding through permitting to be approved for construction. Our issue now is the final permits were issued in June but our designated in-water fish window is between July and August and the bid processes takes 2 months, so we won’t be building this year.
Now were trying to negotiate a “floating” fish window that would allow us to bid and build based upon our bridge delivery schedule. It takes about 4 months after bid award to receive the manufactured girders, otherwise we have to wait until next July...
