PROCUREMENT

Due to the size and complexity of the improvements to the highway, the upgrades are being undertaken in four (4) phases.

PHASE 4 - West Portal to Yoho Bridge

The ministry has completed preliminary engineering for Phase 4 and intends to issue a design-build Request for Proposals that would see construction begin in 2019.

Phase 3 - GOLDEN HILL TO PORTAL

The extension of the fourth lane down Golden Hill was delivered by day labour (whereby the Ministry hires local workers and equipment directly) and a major works paving contract (awarded to Dawson Construction Ltd).

A $27.2-million contract was awarded to Emil Anderson Construction Ltd. of Hope, B.C. to design and build the majority of this section.

A $3.89 million contract was awarded to Dawson Construction Limited to complete grading, paving and finishing work for the 4 Kilometre Wall and Approaches.
