Structal-Bridges has secured three contracts totalling close to US$50M for the fabrication of steelwork for bridges that will be erected in Quebec and Alberta.
The work is for the Northeast Anthony Henday Drive, Gilbert River Bridge and Highway 20/73 Interchange.
The Northeast Anthony Henday Drive award was under a joint venture with Rapid-Span Structures. The project, which is a public-private partnership commissioned by Flatiron-Dragados-Aecon-Lafarge, calls for the fabrication of 14 steel highway bridges, including two major 322m structures across the North Saskatchewan River. The components supplied by Structal-Bridges will be fabricated at the Quebec City plant starting in December 2012 with deliveries beginning in spring 2013.
The Gilbert River Bridge is a 326m-long structure that will be erected 52m over the Gilbert River and 34th Street in Notre-Dame-des-Pins, Quebec. The agreement concluded with Coaticook-based Couillard Construction includes the fabrication and installation of 88 steel girders.
Structal-Bridges will also fabricate the steel components for a second bridge measuring 41m as well as for a footbridge. Goodco Z-Tech, part of Structal-Bridges, will supply 48 structural bearings and 5 expansion joints.
The third new project requires the fabrication of 66 steel girders for the reconstruction of the Highway 20 overpass located at the exit of the Pierre-Laporte Bridge in Lévis. The 317m structure spans both Highway 73 North and Highway 20.
