FORT NELSON, B.C.—The federal government has handed down four construction contracts for work on the Alaska Highway to companies from Alberta and British Columbia.
The scope of work covers mainly a 33-kilometre stretch of the remote 2,500-kilometre route that connects northern B.C. to Yukon and Alaska.
Alberta-based Allied Paving Co. was awarded a $15 million deal to convert the several dozen kilometre segment from a bituminous surface treatment road to asphalt. Public Services and Procurement Canada said the work will mitigate frequent repairs.
The smaller contracts, meanwhile, include the replacement of a culvert, improvements to an intersection in Wonowon, B.C. and the construction of a new salt shed used for highway maintenance.
Industra Construction Corp., a Coquitlam, B.C.-based contractor was awarded the $2.6 million culvert replacement, DGS Astro Paving of Fort St. John, B.C. the $3.9 million intersection project and Grande Prairie, Alta-based Vertical Building Solutions Inc. the shed building assignment.
