Surveyors, Designers & Engineers Serving Northern British Columbia

Bitter Creek Bridge No 0554 Highway No 37A

As the lead survey and materials testing consultant, we worked with the general contractor to reconstruct the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure’s main bridge on Hwy 37A into to Stewart BC. The Project consisted of the demolition of an existing bridge, construction of a 51 meter, clear span bridge and removal of a detour bridge.  This includes the installation of steel pipe piles, erection of structural steel, precast concrete members, deck panels, pile caps and bridge parapets, using instream diversions.  9,000 cu m riprap will be drilled and blasted to provide protection for the guide banks and road works associated with the realignment and widening of the approaches.
