McElhanney is providing Construction Supervision for the Halfway River Bridge, a Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure project north of Fort St. John.
With the Malahat Corridor Improvement Project, the BC Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure has been improving the safety of Hwy 1 by installing a median barrier and other upgrades. The stretch of highway which runs through Goldstream Provincial Park is challenging to design solutions for, as it is constrained by the river immediately running next to it, and by park lands on both sides.
McElhanney, along with subconsultants Level Playing Field, Dialog, and Entro, created a network plan for the City of Calgary that improves the current Plus 15, a roughly 16km system of above ground pedestrian corridors and bridges in downtown Calgary.
The BC Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure wanted to improve the link between the Comox Valley and the Island Highway on Vancouver Island, with wider paved shoulders and a multi-use pathway, to improve safety for pedestrians, equestrians, and cyclists.
Completed in 2016, the new cable stayed four-lane Nipigon River Bridge replaced a two-lane steel deck truss bridge which had been built in 1974. The bridge is part of the Trans-Canada Highway and carries traffic over the Nipigon River in northwestern Ontario.
Banff National Park is home to a spectacular landscape and countless species of wildlife, attracting more than four million visitors each year.
The historic raising of the Bayonne Bridge has permitted the largest modern supertankers and shipping vessels vital access to Newark Bay.
McElhanney was retained to design a brand new road for the Township of Langley, connecting the intersection of Labonte Ave / 216th Street with the intersection of Glover Road / Trinity Western University.
McElhanney was retained to twin the bridge, widen 0.8km of approach roads, and upgrade the multi-use bike path, to improve efficiency, safety, and accessibility for all users.
