Highway 29 Resurfacing

Resurfacing work will soon begin on Highway 29 in British Columbia.

Approximately 47 kilometres of work has been scheduled for the highway stretching from Bullmoose Flats Bridge located 25 kilometres north of Tumbler Ridge to the Sukunka Forest Service Road.

Penticton, B.C.-based Peter’s Brothers Construction Ltd. was awarded the $4.8-million contract and will begin work this summer.

Single-lane alternating traffic will be in place during construction and hot-in-place recycled asphalt will be used as it reduces greenhouse gases and conserves non-renewable paving materials, explains a release.

BC Hydro Awards Three Major Site C Contracts

BC Hydro recently announced it has awarded three major Site C project contracts, including one for the generating station and spillways civil works.

AFDE Partnership, comprised of Aecon, Flatiron, Dragados and EBC, have received the $1.6-billion contract for the generating station and spillways work, which is the second largest contract on the project and includes delivery of the powerhouse, penstocks, spillways and power intakes. The overall revised budget of the project is $10.7 billion.

Construction will include placement of approximately 700,000 cubic metres of mass and reinforced concrete, the installation of 34,000 tonnes of rebar and two 17-storey-high spillways.

The AFDE partnership has signed a labour agreement which has a goal of up to 25 per cent apprenticeships on the project and includes unions from the BC Building Trades. The agreement also prioritizes hiring local and Indigenous workers.

Work on the contract will start onsite in spring 2018 and will be completed over a five-year period. An estimated 1,600 people will be working on the generating station and spillways civil works at peak construction in 2021, states a release.

A $33-million contract was also awarded to Nanaimo-based F&M Installations to build the Site C substation, and REEL COH Inc. was awarded a $23-million contract to design, supply and commission the generating station and spillways powerhouse bridge and gantry cranes.
