how we operate
Accidents are a sign of inefficiency. Our motto is proudly displayed – “A Safe Company to Work For”. It is implemented through a vigorous safety program and demonstrated by the results. WB maintains one of the lowest accident incident rates in the US for highway construction firms. Key elements of the program include drug and alcohol testing, training, and incentive based behavior modification.
WB is committed to continuous environmental improvement. Using a “team” approach, our Environmental Director leads the Company’s Environmental Committee through regular reviews of the effectiveness of company processes and the search for newer and better approaches to protect the environment. Combined with monthly environmental training to enhance awareness and education, WB has made significant strides to minimize its environmental footprint.

They carry two lanes of traffic, two bicycle lanes, a utility parapet in each direction and sidewalks outside of each arch. Their total widths are 60 feet each. The arches, 45 feet apart, are fabricated from steel plate and braced with rectangular HSS. The deck is composed of full-width precast and pre-stressed panels that are post-tensioned and overlaid with composite concrete.
