25 Years and Counting!
Throughout the year we continue to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Woodson Engineering and Surveying, and recognize important milestones. Our next announcement is our anniversary party. We hope you will join us on Thursday, June 13th from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m . If you subscribe to our e-newsletter you should have received a Save the Date reminder at the end of March. We will send another event announcement as the date approaches in early June. We will have appetizers, beverages, prizes and 25 years of memories to share with our friends.

Also, over the course of the next several months we will take a look back at several key projects from our early days. In our last issue we visited the Historic Colton House project at the Museum of Northern Arizona. In this issue, we celebrate the Renaissance on Route 66 for the City of Winslow (see article below).
Woodson Projects Under Construction
This spring, Woodson is managing over $4 Million of construction projects. These include Grand Canyon Boulevard for the City of Williams, the Ellen Waterline for the City of Williams, Foxtrot Power System Improvements for Camp Navajo, Renaissance on Route 66 - Phase 6 for the City of Winslow and the Apache Sewer Bypass for the City of Winslow.

The Apache Sewer Bypass provides the City of Winslow with increased sewer capacity for the future. A key component of this project is boring a 48-inch sleeve under Interstate 40 for a new line that must have a slope of only .09% (see photo above).
Project From the Past... and Present!
One of Woodson's earliest contracts was with the City of Winslow as the contract City Engineer - a role we continue to fill to this day. Our 24-year history in Winslow has resulted in hundreds of projects. Perhaps the most visible was the revitalization of the historic downtown area. We recently opened bids on Phase 6 of this series of projects know as Renaissance on Route 66 .

This redevelopment project has spanned over 20 years with over $20 Million of improvements for the City. Woodson has managed this multi-jurisdictional project since inception. We have provided master planning, phasing, engineering and construction administration services. Renaissance on Route 66 Phase 2 featured the Standin’ on the Corner Park. This site averages 100,000 visitors every year. The project was awarded the APWA Public Works Project of the Year in Historical Renovation/Preservation.
New Staff
Over the last several months we have been steadily building our team. We are excited to announce three new staff that have joined Woodson. Angela Larson Inmon has filled a new position as Operations Manager, overseeing our administrative operations. Angela is a business and accounting professional with over 25 years of experience in accounting, management, marketing, sales, human resources, and benefits.

On the engineering side of our operations, we have added Taylor Layland , PE, and Lane Butler . Taylor completed a B.S. in Civil Engineering from NAU in 2012 and joins us as an Engineer. He has worked in the Flagstaff area for over 5 years and is very familiar with our local projects.

Lane joins our team as a highly experienced Designer. Most recently he has been a key designer on many new private developments such as several new shopping centers on the Navajo Nation.

We are excited about these recent additions and the skills they bring. With the amount of work we have underway, we felt this was an important step to take to strengthen our entire team.
