“The relationship with Coastal has involved great collaboration, and dedicated
teamwork in an environment of trust. On the University Bridge, Coastal is delivering in
similar style, working through a variety of difficult issues to reign in our construction
budget to within our expectations. We are excited, to move forward with Coastal on our
team to provide solid construction expertise on another exciting project.”
