High water events in the autumn of 2013 caused significant damage to the Rainbow Bridge Trail in Rainbow Bridge National Monument – a remote National Park Service site accessible only via footpath or by boat.

Repair and reconstruction of the trail required barge transport of all equipment, materials, and personnel from Page, Arizona, to the job site. To reduce transportation costs and job duration, the crew was supplied with houseboat housing, enabling them to maintain a continuous work schedule.

The trail repair and improvement process included trenching and excavating for a new gabion trail support structure and installing the gabion. To address additional erosion caused by an overhead waterfall feature during flash flood events, Loven Contracting designed and constructed a concrete pad in the water flow’s impact zone. Upon construction completion, the crew removed the temporary trail reroute and the equipment access road. Our crew conducted all site clean-up and restoration activities per National Park Service standards.

Loven Contracting renovated and rehabilitated the Cataract Lake County Park in Williams, Arizona to increase the public’s utilization of the park’s space. To achieve this, Loven Contracting’s services on the 15.1-acre County Park renovation included replacing the existing park amenities – ranging from shade structures, ramadas, canopies, and bathroom facilities – with new, updated fixtures as well as adding several lakeside detention basins for improved flood control and drainage.

Additional amenities included asphalt driveways, concrete pathways, site lighting, horseshoe pits, playground area and equipment, boat landing, and parking area. Through Loven Contracting’s construction services, what began as an outdated recreation area became a renewed outdoor space that is now enjoyed by many outdoor recreationalists in the City of Williams, Coconino County, and across Northern Arizona.

Loven Contracting completed a 12.5-acre renovation of Raymond Park, including extensive site work, amphitheater-style outdoor seating, landscaping, decorative concrete, stormwater management, safety lighting, and site furnishings, trash receptacles, electrical and vertical construction. The historical gravesite of Dr. Raymond and multiple distinctive trees were carefully protected during construction. Additional amenities constructed included a baseball diamond, high school dimension basketball court with an additional half-court, picnic tables, barbecue grills, drinking fountains, and new asphalt parking lots.

The rock-laden site conditions prompted Loven Contracting to utilize grade checking and consulting surveyors to chart the best layout for ADA-compliant sidewalks at the project site. Loven Contracting completed renovations on Raymond Park before freezing winter temperatures and finished the project on schedule through phased construction.
