This project involved overlaying approximately 5,000 tonnes of asphalt concrete pavement within Red Deer County. A section of the overlays was undertaken in the busy Gasoline Alley industrial subdivision area near the city of Red Deer. The County of Red Deer required the expertise to identify areas that required deep strengthening within their road network. The areas of importance were the industrial subdivisions. The heavy truck traffic that is generated shortens the life of a roadway if it was not designed for the heavy truck traffic.
Williams Engineering Canada Inc. undertook detailed design and construction management for the realignment of Bunt Lake Trail and Poplar Ridge Road. The north-south legs of the Burnt Lake Trail were off-set by 5 m (east to west). This was becoming a serious concern due to increased traffic associated with a rise in industrial and commercial usage in the area. Williams Engineering redesigned the intersection to accommodate heavy truck traffic and improve the flow of vehicles through the Burnt Lake Trail Industrial Park.
The civil team at Williams Engineering Canada (WEC) conducted a study of the existing road system in Dettah, N.W.T., a community of just over 200 people located on the shore of Great Slave Lake. Dettah, previously known as Burnt Point, has been a traditional Dene fish camp for hundreds of years with hunting, trapping and fishing dominating the local economy. In the summer, Dettah is a 27-kilometre drive accessible by an all-weather road from Yellowknife, while in the winter, a six-kilometre ice road across the Yellowknife Bay provides access to Dettah.
Williams Engineering Canada has been providing Lacombe County with general engineering services for the design, tendering, contract administration, and construction services of delineation illumination at the intersection of Highway 20 and Aspelund Road.
Williams Engineering Canada was retained to provide preliminary engineering, detailed design, tendering services, construction management services, and post construction services for the grading improvements of Ribstone Road (approximately 15 km in length). This project has been designed and awarded for construction to commence. It is anticipated that the construction of this roadway be completed in the Spring of 2010.
