7th and Maritime Storm Drain lift station repair 2022

Cooper Construction swiftly responded to an urgent project, addressing a critical stormwater lift station repair for the Port of Oakland's main underpass on 7th Street. Given the high traffic volume, with approximately 2.9 million containers entering and departing from the port annually via train and trucks, this main artery simply could not afford to be obstructed by stormwater issues. The task at hand required the replacement of malfunctioning duplex control panels, inclusive of all essential floats and supplementary equipment essential for a fully automated system.

Cooper Construction and Engineering successfully executed this project within an impressively short timeframe, completing it just before an anticipated storm event. This timely and efficient solution ensured the uninterrupted flow of traffic and the continued smooth operation of the vital transportation route.
