Trans-Canada Highway #1 – Lake Louise, AB

In June 2010, Aecon initiated work on a complex $45-Million road construction project on the Trans-Canada Highway that spans from Lake Louise to the British Columbia border. Aecon has been tasked with “twinning” the highway through the mountains of Banff National Park.

The project is a challenging one and Aecon’s roadbuilding skills have been put to the test, from the environmental requirements of relocating a river and creating safe animal passages under the highway, to complex bridge and road construction through the mountains. It has meant blasting, rock removal and materials management in a fairly remote area for highway construction. Aecon has successfully met the challenge of supplying enough aggregate for the road base and ensuring hot asphalt availability on-site for the highest-quality road surface, all within extreme and constantly-changing weather conditions resulting in a short construction window.

The Trans-Canada Highway twinning project exemplifies the One Aecon approach to project: Several Aecon business units are involved in the construction contract, in addition to our joint venture with Ruskin Construction (20%).

Scope:

  • Length of project = 6.2 kms
  • Construction of two new eastbound lanes
  • Reconstruction of two existing lanes
  • Construction of six structures

Structures:

  • Animal underpass – 60m box girder bridge
  • CP Rail overpass – 45m precast girder bridge
  • Animal underpass –  41m culvert
  • Bath Creek culvert – 57m precast concrete arch culvert
  • CP Rail overpass – 100m precast girder
  • Retaining wall – precast concrete panels, 938m in length x 3-9m high

Quantities:

  • Rock blasting – 8,000 cubic metres
  • Earthwork – 200,000 cubic metres
  • Granular placement – 300,000 tonnes
  • Hot mix asphalt – 82,000 tonnes

The Lake Louise Trans-Canada Highway twinning project is expected to reach completion in Summer, 2012.
