This project for BC Hydro included the construction of 39.2 kilometres of access roads and crane pads ahead of the transmission line installation from Site C to Groundbirch substation. The construction included high grade all-season roads, geo design roads in terrain stability areas and winter construction of high-grade roads across swamp and muskeg. Pipeline crossings, culvert installations, erosion and sediment controls, as well as rip rap armouring of ditch lines and cut slopes, occurred concurrently with all operations. The project was completed on schedule and on budget with zero incidents.
This Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure project was to re-establish access to the community of Old Fort after a section of the Peace Valley slid. This slide cut off access from the community and created a state of emergency. The construction included approximately 1.4 kilometers of temporary access with the establishment of new drainage patterns for run off. While doing so we monitored the stability of the slide, it created quite the challenge for all parties involved. It was satisfying watching the residents return home once the access was opened and seeing them wave and give thumbs up to the construction crew!
This job was completed for the Public Works and Government Services Canada. It was a slope stabilization project done on KM 155 of the Alaska Highway. It included the construction of an embankment buttress using granular materials, reinforced with geogrid against the existing northbound lane to mitigate slope movement. This also improved drainage quality along with flattening the overall embankment slope. The embankment buttress included shear key and subdrain, the southbound lane included water management upgrades with construction of lined ditch.
We completed this project for PCL Constructors on behalf of BC Hydro, this included the removal and disposal of contaminated soils, installation of manholes and catch basins. We tied it into the City infrastructure to facilitate re-grading and drainage of the storage yard. This was a challenging project to meet all specifications and requirements during the shoulder season of October/November.
Cecil Lake experienced a major slip on the North East portion of the hill so we were brought in to assess and complete a temporary detour for traffic. The slide incorporated the entire HWY, we stripped the site and unloaded the weight of materials from the site. We surveyed in a trail (based on old existing trail) and set road perimeters. Construction consisted of using on site materials and best construction practices. Sub base was placed, compacted and covered with aggregate materials. The hill, inlets and outlets were armored with rock for erosion control.
This project was completed for the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure at the Fort St. John 3 bridge on the Montney Creek along the Cecil Lake Road. It was a challenging project that included creek diversion and pumping, fish salvage, rip rap installation and the construction of a soil wrap and cuttings. There was coarse woody debris structures and boulder clusters installed in the new creek bed as part of the habitat compensation. Project was completed without causing any environmental issues and we ended up with a positive report by all the Ministries involved with overseeing it.
In the spring of 2019, ACL developed a pit and started producing gravel in the Mile 109 area of the Peace Region. Our crushing and screening has produced various products that are readily available for use in the Oil & Gas industry as well as Ministry use. Sieves and specifications are available upon request.
This project was completed for the Ministry of Transportation. The construction was done at approximately 1.2KM from the intersection of Highway 29 and Farrell Creek Road. We supplied and installed HDPE culvert crossings, butt fused outfall, did some road widening and lined ditch construction along the Farrell Creek Road.
This was a small add on project we did for ATCO Two Rivers Lodge down at Site C Dam. “A path for prayer and meditation. A tool for transformation and healing. A stroll with your soul.” These words mark the entrance of the Labyrinth, a new walking path and memorial for people wishing to find peace and meditation. A.C.L was honored to be a part of such an important memorial project!
