Though the temperatures may be dropping and the winter months are upon us, Crooker is still busy working away on construction projects. Earlier this month we started the new Cooks Corner Connector Road project, which will link Admiral Fitch Avenue of the Brunswick Landing to Gurnet Road/Route 24 in Brunswick. This project is a key piece to the continual redevelopment of the Brunswick Landing, as it will provide another means of access and allow for better traffic flow.
The 2018 paving season came to a close on December 7th. We capped off by a lowering of the flags on top of our hot top silos, and the placement of this year’s Christmas tree in its place.
Crooker Construction, LLC will be hosting its annual career fair on Saturday April 7, 2018 from 7:00am to 1:00pm.
Recently, Crooker Construction provided local elementary students a special opportunity to get up close and personal with our heavy machinery. The students had a blast learning about the ins and outs of not only the equipment, but the industry in general.

In 2014, Crooker completed the installation of a box culvert across Route 27 in Arrowsic, Maine to help restore the Alewife population in the area. A video that provides background information on the project, along with footage of the fabrication and installation can be found at the link below.
