The Pine Pass project is located on HIghway 97 between Prince George and Chetwynd, BC. The project provided for the reconstruction and widening of 11.2 kilometres of the existing highway which included 2.1 kilometres of new road. To overcome some of the sub-standard horizontal alignments, the project included two major bridges crossing the Pine River. There were two minor bridges to replace existing culverts along Highway 97. Other construction works included type A and D excavations, blasting, embankment fills, granular fills, and paving.
Binnie provided Construction Supervision Services, which included Quality Assurance, review of the contractor’s Quality Control Plan, an Environmental Plan, a Traffic Management Plan, and a Site Safety Plan. Binnie’s on-site team tracked quantities through survey and re-measures and CAiCE.
Binnie crews were responsible for bridge end fill construction, surcharge, monitoring, and removal, placing of riprap in the river, reviewing environmental permits with the environmental representative, construction of lock block retaining walls at abutments, placing the waterproof membrane, and paving of the bridge deck.
