Over 60 Years of Service
For over 60 years, Magruder Construction Company has been in the business of performing heavy highway construction projects of all scopes and magnitudes. Our skilled people and extensive inventory of owned equipment allows us to self-perform all aspects of grading, pile driving, concrete construction, pipe installation, rock placement, mechanical dredging and hydraulic dredging. In addition, our project management team includes surveyors, engineers, quality control managers and superintendents. We rely very little on subcontractors but if the need arises, we have numerous partners in the industry to perform the construction of specialty items.
We are a 40-year member of, and have been actively involved in, the Associated General Contractors (AGC). We adhere to their motto: Skill, Integrity, Responsibility.
Our work in the Heavy Highway area of construction can be broken down into four signifcant areas:

Our experienced bridge employees self-perform all phases of the bridge project from pile driving to final finishes.
