Repair of Brassey Creek Bridge No. 8622 - BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure

The Brassey Creek crossing consists of a culvert carrying Brassey Creek under Highway 52, approximately 26 kilometres south of the intersection with Highway 97. The culvert was washed out during a significant flood event in 2011 and two single-lane temporary bridges were installed in July 2011 to restore traffic flow.

Allnorth was engaged through an As-and-When-Required bridge engineering contract with the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure Northern Region to provide conceptual designs for a permanent replacement structure.

Allnorth presented a conceptual design report to the Ministry, providing three concept designs and cost estimates plus recommendations. This project was eligible for funding through the Provincial Emergency  Program/Disaster Financial Assistance. The options presented represented an "improvement" to the pre-flood event condition and Allnorth provided justification to the Ministry for those improvements.

The project was scheduled for  tender as a design/build project for summer 2012 construction causing stringent time restrictions for the completion of the concept design work, which Allnorth successfully met.

Allnorth responsibilities:

  • Conceptual designs
  • Structural design
  • Road design
  • Liaison with sub-consultants
  • Conceptual design report
  • Cost estimates
  • Adherence to Provincial Emergency Program (PEP) Guidelines
