Mt. Hood Village RV Resort is a popular vacation resort located near Mt. Hood National Forest. With the Sandy River to the north, the Salmon River directly to the south, and the peak of Mt. Hood nearby to the east, the resort is in an ideal location for exploring. Given the town’s proximity to Mt. Hood National Forest, both year-round residents and short-term visitors have access to several recreational activities, including skiing, fishing, and hiking.
The project scope included the clearing and development of 109 total camper lots. GBI installed rain gardens and provided new storm systems and paved roads as well as domestic water, electrical, sewer, and cable service. GBI crews laid approximately 10,000 LF of waterline, 3,000 LF of storm pipe, and 7,000 LF of sanitary sewer. Between mass excavation and the pipe operations, around 25,000 yards of export left the job site. Close to 30,000 tons of rock were brought in for the roads, RV and cabin pads, and pipe backfill.
As the project progressed, the team formed a strong and trusting relationship with the owner. GBI effectively collaborated with the resort to reduce traffic and facility disruptions, which enabled regular visitors and campers to utilize open spaces and the community center while work was underway.
This job was unique due to a combination of location and seasonal challenges. With a project start date at the onset of Oregon’s rainy season, GBI tackled the challenge of starting mass grading in a part of the state that averages 54 inches of rain and 24 inches of snow annually. With a little bit of cement treatment and a lot of patience, fills were placed, and the project moved forward.
