Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project
The Port Mann/Highway 1 Improvement Project includes construction of a new 10-lane Port Mann Bridge, widening the highway, upgrading interchanges and improving access and safety on Highway 1.
The project spans a distance of approximately 37 kilometres from the McGill Street Interchange in Vancouver to 216th Street in Langley.
Binnie staff put about 40,000 person hours into this $2.5 Billion project. Binnie’s responsibilities related to reviews of the Design Build Contractor’s submissions and reports and consisted of five distinct activities:
- Coordination of the submission and review process
- Review of detour and traffic control plans
- Production of property acquisition drawings
- Review of geometric design, signage and pavement markings
- Design of intersections, interchanges, and road sections not covered by the reference concept as well as design of multi-purpose urban paths.
Binnie’s Geomatics team provided detailed Field Surveys and preparation of CAiCE models and Survey Base Plans for ancillary projects.
Ancillary design assignments completed by Binnie include:
- Preliminary Design of the Kensington Avenue and Canada Way Intersection
- Preliminary Design of the Highway 1 and 192nd Street Interchange
- Preliminary Design of the Roundabout Ramp Terminal Intersection for the Highway 1 and 202nd Street Interchange
