HWY #263 - CHRISTOPHER LAKE, SASKATCHEWAN
The Christopher Lake Project consisted of a grade pave from the village of Christopher Lake to the hamlet of Tweedsmuir totaling a distance of 13 kilometers through the resort area of Emma and Christopher Lake.
The project began in the winter of 2015 where we performed logging and clearing of the ROW. Grading followed and began in the spring of 2015 and continued late into November of that season. Additional tree clearing due to design changes, wetland through grade pipes, and a pit-run subgrade modification were also completed in the winter of 2016 in preparation for the summer season.
Broda moved more than 500,000 m3 of material and cleared over 50 hectares of trees with a large portion of the project interacting with the existing roadway and active traffic. Although presented with many challenges that included wildfire smoke, wet fall, and the seasonal traffic from tourists and lakegoers, the project was completed on budget and on time.
