McDonald Excavating Completes First Transportation Infrastructure Project
McDonald Excavating, located in the rural town of Washougal, Washington, is a family owned and operated Native American company. A few years ago the company completed a $2.8 million dollar project on the I-205 light rail extension — its first transportation infrastructure project, as well as its first design-build. In FY 2012, McDonald Excavating won a similar bid for the Portland-Milwaukie Light Rail System for $1.5 million; followed by a Sellwood Bridge Replacement project for $1.7 million.
The MBDA helped McDonald Excavating to become a certified DBE subcontractor for the state of Washington and continues to provide business consulting services. "We learned really quickly that on a project of this magnitude and with as many trades represented on the project site, it is vitally important to diligently coordinate our work with the prime as well as the other subcontractors," said Ryan McDonald, Vice President and Project Director.
