PCL has been selected as a preferred proponent to build the new Johnson Street Bridge in Victoria, British Columbia.
“We’re very pleased with PCL’s proposal and that we’re now in a position to negotiate the fixed-price contract for the bridge within the approved budget,” said mayor of Victoria, Dean Fortin. The collaborative process was designed to deliver a proposal for a bridge with design and functionality requirements that the community approved through the referendum
Both Peter Kiewit Infrastructure and WCC Construction Canada also submitted proposals for the new bridge.
In the next coming months, PCL and the City of Victoria will negotiate final details of a fixed-price contract for the bridge’s construction. Final approval will be required from Council prior to the award of the contract. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2013 and the anticipated completion of the project will be before March 31, 2016.
