Structal-Bridges recently completed the delivery of components for the construction of the Musquash Bridge, one of several structures being built in the scope of the Route 1 Gateway Project in New Brunswick. Structal-Bridges was mandated by Dexter Construction Company Ltd. to fabricate 11 steel structures as part of this project, which will add 55 kilometers to the existing highway.
In addition to supplying 3,400 tons of steel and Goodco Z-Tech structural bearings, Structal-Bridges executed the field erection of girders for 8 of the 11 structures. The components were fabricated at Canam Group’s Quebec-based plants in Quebec City, St. Gédéon and Laval, while deliveries stretched from June 2011 to May 2012.
This project will primarily benefit the highway corridor between St. Stephen – Calais, the border crossing between New Brunswick and Maine, and the Trans-Canada Highway in River Glade. Construction is expected to be completed by July 31, 2013.
