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.
Since 2008, McElhanney has completed over 300 assignments for Parks Canada. This includes emergency response services for major floods in Banff, Jasper, and Kootenay National Parks in 2012 and 2013, as well as avalanche cleanup in Banff National Park in 2017.
Following severe rain in June 2011, Hwy 97 experienced floods between Pine Pass and 20km south of Chetwynd (a length of 60km), with 73 damaged sites. This flooding resulted in the loss of culverts and bridge end fills, and washouts along various portions of the highway, forcing closure of this vital route.
The Warman & Martensville Interchanges or Overpasses located on Highway 12 at Martensville and Highway 11 at Warman, will improve safety for two of the fastest growing communities in Saskatchewan.
McElhanney was retained by Parks Canada Agency to provide the following services: roadway and surfacing design; geotechnical and materials testing; drainage review and design; utility coordination; integration of bridges, lighting, signing; construction administration; road safety audits and upgrades; and surveying.
TransLink and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure brought on McElhanney as the prime consultant to address deck repairs and create both a traffic management plan and an operations plan. The result was comprehensive plan that allowed the bridge deck rehabilitation to be completed and re-opened ahead of schedule.
During construction, more than 120,000 vehicles drove over the Port Mann Bridge every day, ranging from commuters (travelling 80km/h) to slow-moving construction machinery. The detour designs needed to incorporate HOV lanes, cycling lanes, and dedicated bus and truck ramps, and ensure high-speed and low-speed traffic did not mix.
Calgary, AB – The Government of Alberta and the City of Calgary began planning for the Calgary Ring Road in the 1970s. Throughout the 1980s and 1990s, the province purchased most of the land needed for the transportation utility corridor around Calgary where the ring road would be built. The northwest, northeast, and southeast sections are now in operation – known collectively as Stoney Trail – and motorists now have 70km of free-flow travel.
Whistler to Vancouver, BC – The Sea to Sky Highway links communities from Whistler to Vancouver. The highway was first paved in 1966 and for many years had only a single lane of traffic in each direction. As populations grew and the economy developed, collisions and accidents increased along the corridor.
