PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Alberta Transportation tendered these two structures along with 29.123 km of grade construction. The bridges were constructed on a virgin alignment making access a challenge. Carmacks commenced construction of these bridges in November 2010 and substantial construction was completed by December 20, 2010. The bridges were constructed simultaneously in order to minimize mobilization costs and to advance the schedule.

Construction of the bridges progressed well but the guardrail installation could not be completed until the grading contractor completed construction of the roadway embankment at each end of the structures. The job was completed well ahead of schedule and on budget.
