We’re a tunnel contractor you can trust.

What We Offer

LRL Construction is a family-owned business based in Tillamook, Oregon. We were formed and incorporated in 1996 by Denis Laviolette and Robert Richey, who had a combined 65+ years of mining experience.

Their background in underground mining construction methods, blast training, and surface construction provided them with the necessary skills to excel in the field. Now, with three generations of miners in the family, worldwide experience, and a team of professional employees, LRL Construction has become one of the top specialty tunnel contractors in the railroad sector.

We have the ability to overcome obstacles fast and efficiently. Our team has built a solid reputation as an emergency responder to natural and manmade disasters for most construction emergencies, helping you get the high-quality services you need fast.
