Mr. Abramson devoted more than 40 years to the Alabama road building industry.
When his father Leo joined A.E. Burgess Construction, Mr. Abramson followed, and soon after they founded Birmingham-based Abramson & Sons.
When the interstate era began, the company served as a subcontractor on highway projects across Alabama, performing concrete structure work for builders including Burgess, Harbert, Moss-Thornton, W.S. Newell, and Warren Brothers. In 1974 the Abramsons established Alabama Bridge, Inc.
In 1977, Mr. Abramson took over Abramson & Sons and his sons Alan and Greg joined him. The company brought to Alabama its first curbing machine and led the movement toward slip-forming median barriers.
Active in the company until 1995, Mr. Abramson embraced high quality at a fair price.
Known for the friendships he developed through his working relationships, he earned the trust and confidence of his peers, competitors, clients, partners and suppliers a reputation that continues today.
