The Old Olympic Highway at the McDonald Creek Bridge was closed on July 10th, 2017 for a complete replacement of the earthquake prone and functionally obsolete bridge built in 1957.
Spirit Vision Films was contracted to document the progress of the bridge deconstruction and the new bridge’s construction by the Orion Marine Group, awarded to them by the Clallam County Road Department.
Whereas, working with the City of Port Angeles, we produced a video for them in 14 days, the Clallam County bridge project lasted nearly 10 month.
The final video is made up of mostly aerial clips that we flew around the project, but we used a time-lapse GoPro, and our Canon cinema camera to capture the progression as well.
But today both the bridge and the video are complete and we at SVF’s could not be happier!
If you have never seen a bridge being constructed, this video is for you! Watch from the very beginning until the bridge’s dedication on April 28th, to the opening three days later on May 1st, 2018.
We hope you enjoy it!
