McElhanney Wins at CEA’s Annual Transportation Connects Alberta Conference

Last month, the Consulting Engineers of Alberta (CEA) hosted the Transportation Connects Alberta Conference to celebrate significant socio-economic return on transportation investments in the province of Alberta.

During this event, the Minister’s Awards for Transportation Innovation were presented. These awards recognize individuals and organizations in six different categories, celebrating transportation innovations – large or small – that pave the way toward a better, more efficient, sustainable, and safer transportation system in Alberta.

McElhanney is proud to announce that, in collaboration with the Government of Alberta and Ledcor, we were recognized with the Transportation and Economic Corridors (TEC) Partnering Award of Merit for our work on the Highway 3 and 40 Improvements Project! This award recognizes completed contracts that best promote, adhere to, and optimize the principles of partnering while celebrating project success, sharing lessons learnt, and honouring all parties’ participation in the partnering process.

The Highway 3 and 40 Improvements Project involved rehabilitating the westernmost portion of Highway 3:02: Alberta’s southernmost east-west economic corridor that connects Alberta to British Columbia and Saskatchewan. The scope of work included replacing 120,000 tonnes of asphalt; 5.5km of W-Beam guardrail; 6.7km of high-tension cable barriers; upgrading bridgerail transition approach rail at six bridges; closure of four approaches and construction of three new ones; and 211 durable messages – all of this while accommodating an average daily summer traffic of 7,000 to 11,000 vehicles from west to east!

At McElhanney, we are constantly striving for ways to improve the communities in which we live and work, and we couldn’t be prouder to be a part of the team recognized with this prestigious award. A heartfelt thank you and congratulations to our valued partners for helping us make this project such a success!
