The Ministry of Transportation of Alberta has awarded Carmacks – a Canada-based subsidiary of Vinci company Eurovia – the project, which involves widening the expressway in the southern part of the city of Grande Prairie, 450km north-west of Edmonton.

Work on the C$92m contract will begin straightaway and is set to take just over three years. It covers widening a 9.2 m section from a two-lane to a four-lane dual carriageway, and building a three-span steel bridge over the Wapiti River and a pedestrian bridge to allow residents to walk to O’Brien Provincial Park.

Carmacks will implement a dedicated environmental construction operations plan that includes measures such as protecting nesting birds before starting the earthworks, erosion control and turbidity monitoring of waterways during the construction phase.
