The City of Dawson Creek invites bids for the supply and installation of a bridge at the 15th Street crossing of the Dawson Creek. The target completion date for the project is December 30, 2016.

In June 2016 the City of Dawson Creek experienced a significant flood that resulted in the loss of the multi-plate arch culvert and two overflow culverts along 15th Street between 107th Avenue and Chamberlain Drive.  The road has been out of service since that time and the intent of this project is to construct a new 24.0m clear-span precast concrete bridge.  This new bridge structure is to have two 4.5m vehicle lanes, a 3.4 m cyclist lane, and a 2.2m sidewalk to service a future sidewalk planned in the next 5 years.  The new bridge structure and municipal items reference to the design codes outlined below.  Bidders and their sub-trades are required to obtain copies of the relevant codes.

  • CAN/CSA S6-14, “Canadian Highway Bridge Code”
  • BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure 2012 Standard Specifications for Highway Construction
  • 2009 Master Municipal Construction Document (MMCD) Platinum Volume II

The removal of the multi-plate culvert, two overflow culverts and the concrete slab was completed by the City of Dawson Creek during the months of July and August 2016.  This contract does not include any site clean-up related to the original culverts.
