EUGENE, Ore. – If you’ve got the skills, there’s work waiting for you.

Hamilton Construction is working on several large projects right now. One of the biggest is the Delta Highway and Beltline interchange.

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the company said they’ve made some changes, including moving morning meetings outside. Many are working from home.

And at the work sites, field safety manager Rich Carden said like everyone else, they’re having to maintain six feet of distance.

“It’s going to be a little slower than our typical production rates, but it is what it is, and our guys are complying well and understand the seriousness of the situation,” he said.

There was some concern the project would be slowed because of trouble getting materials out of Canada, but he said it all worked out and the project is rolling right along.

As part of our Skilled to Work initiative, we partner with employers in our area to address the lack of workers for skilled jobs.
