The Disraeli Bridges project is a two kilometer P3 initiative that consisted of two vehicular structures and three stretches of reconstructed roadway. The existing bridge over the Red River was retrofitted as an active transportation corridor.
The client’s goal was to retrofit the existing structures and minimize the estimated 16 months of bridge closures. PCL's design-build team solved the issue by building two new adjacent structures, thereby allowing traffic to flow uninterrupted during construction. Transitioning traffic from the old structures to the new occurred in several stages.
To streamline the permitting process and fast-track construction, we initiated regulatory involvement from the start. As a result, permits were received without delay, and approvals for PCL’s proposed solutions to critical issues were fast and easy.
