January 2022

Over the holidays, MVE responded to ODOTs emergency request to repair a mud slide which had eroded away a large section of US101 just south of Newport, OR. MVE quickly mobilized equipment, crews, and materials and had the highway repaved and back open within 5 days from Notice to Proceed. During the project, MVE provided traffic control, excavated approximately 300 CuYDs of slide debris, installed nearly 1,000 CuYDs of rock and over 100 ton of asphalt.


March 2022

MVE used it's heavy duty brush mulcher to clear nearly 3 acres of ground. Next, the ground was regraded to remove slopes previously too steep for farm equipment. In just two days, MVE moved approximately 10,000 CuYds of dirt which will allow the land owner to grow crops on the newly graded area for the first time since he's owned it.


May 2022

MVE designed and installed a full turnkey on site septic system for a new home site. The system included a 1,500 dual compartment concrete tank and three drain field lines totaling 450 linear feet in drainage. The system was built to exacting state and county standards and passed inspection without issue.

Home: Testimonials

Working with Mid-Valley Excavation was an excellent experience. They took the time to come out and give a thorough bid inspection. They spent a good amount of time talking to us, listening to our wishes and needs and discussing project scope and requirements. They delivered a bid quickly and they were very responsive to follow-up questions and concerns. Their work is great, the end result was above and beyond my expectations. They were quick, efficient, and work with an attention to detail. It was a pleasure working with them. I would hire them again for future projects.
