Bituminex Paving Ltd. completed the Stage 1 Roadworks contract for the City of Winnipeg in 2010-2011. This $10 million contract involved excavation, land drainage installation, sub base and base course installation, concrete pavement and asphalt pathways. The "degree of difficulty" was high, as the project included paving through a 350 meter long underground tunnel. Ventilating the tunnel of exhaust fumes during base placement and concrete paving was a complex task which required the purchase and installation of two huge custom built fans.
Key project features:
- 2.2 kilometers of 230 mm concrete pavement (paved 8.2m, full width)
- 65,000 tonnes of limestone aggregates
- 2000 lineal meters of Multi Use Pathway
- Over 1000 trees and 18 acres of native grasses planted
