Located south of Boyle, this Alberta Transportation project includes pavement rehabilitation and safety improvements on 30 km of Highway 831:10. The pavement rehabilitation includes subgrade excavation, full width cold milling and paving to maintain the existing roadway width. Geometric improvements to six intersections are proposed, including construction of two service roads. Other work includes sideslope
Survey & Geomatics
This Alberta Transportation project included pavement rehabilitation of 17.85 km of Highway 64:02 from the British Columbia border to 6 km east of Highway 717, as well as a safety rest area at km 1.4. The pavement rehabilitation included subgrade excavation, mill and fill transverse crack repair, spray patch, and an asphalt overlay. Other work
Situated on the south bank of the Pelly River, Ross River is a small community in east-central Yukon. Cyclical spring thaws and ice jams caused Pelly River to flood into Ross River’s low-lying areas. The floods contributed to higher road maintenance costs, broken road BST surfacing, and surface water pooling within ditches and low areas. Local First Nation and territorial governments requested a road network re-design and re-construction to resolve these long-standing roadwork and drainage issues.
This project involved the expansion of High River’s and Okotoks’ substations. For the Okotoks substation, 11 concrete pile foundations and 1 circuit breaker pad foundation were installed. The High River substation was upgraded by expanding the substation pad. The fence was modified contain this expansion, and 5 concrete pile foundations and 1 circuit breaker pad foundation were installed.
The Black Spruce 154S Substation is a new 240-kV switching station located 35 km south of Conklin, Alberta, on the Cenovus Christina Lake Project Site. This substation provides reliable power to the oil industry in that region. Site preparation, grading, and an access road were necessary for this project.
Together with our partners, CAP installed 263 self-supporting and guyed steel lattice towers for this project. This transmission line spans 95 km of isolated mountainous terrain. It extends from the Bob Quinn airstrip, to Imperial Metals’ Red Chris Mine and the surrounding communities at Tatogga Lake.
Located in British Columbia, 1,000 km northwest of Vancouver, Forrest Kerr is a 195-MW run-of-river hydroelectric project. This facility captures the immense energy produced by the natural flow and elevation drop of the Iskut River. It delivers clean, renewable power to the grid at Bob Quinn Lake, through BC Hydro’s 287-kV Northwest Transmission Line (NTL). Locally, the project acts as a clean, renewable energy source for regional development. On a national and global scale, the project helps meet Canada’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The Kearl Lake project involved the construction of a 71-km transmission line anchored by a 240-kV substation. First, our partners excavated and graded the site, then laid the line foundation. Once the transmission line and substation were constructed, the transformer oil containment pits were raised.
