HIGHWAY 532 AND HIGHWAY 940 FLOOD REPAIR WORK
Location: Longview, AB
Project Type: Transportation
About This Project
As with many of the Southern Alberta flood repair projects, an aggressive project schedule was required to restore the damage portions of the highway and the three standard bridges (BF 77508, BF 77509, BF 77501 and BF 84588). Since the flood event, ISL has provided rehabilitation and reconstruction recommendations to AT which has included the rehabilitation of four bridges, highway wash out repairs, bridge sized culvert replacements, various creek realignments and the design and construction of fish habitats.
The existing bridge culvert on the Livingstone River required environmental sensitivity as it is a critical habitat of the Westslope Cutthroat Trout and thus considered under the Species at Risk Act. In order to minimize the disturbance to the watercourse and limit the environmental impact, a single-span concrete girder bridge was selected as the optimal solution on the Livingstone River.
