CSCE Technical Luncheon - Circle Drive South Design Build Project
CSCE is hosting a technical presentation for April 20, 2011. The presenter is Patrick Lalach from AECOM and his topic is on the Circle Drive South Design Build Project. The location is at the Travelodge South Albert at noon. Cost is $10 for CSCE members and students and $15 for non members.
Below is a brief summary of the Circle Drive South Design-Build project.
The Circle Drive South Design-Build project in Saskatoon is intended to help ease traffic congestion on the SidBuckwoldBridge and complete the Circle Drive corridor through the City. It is the largest project in Saskatoon’s history and the first alternative delivery transportation project in Saskatchewan. Construction began in spring 2010, with the completed roadway and river crossing expected to open in October 2012. The project proponent is the Graham Flatiron Joint Venture, with AECOM providing design services for the project.
The Circle Drive South project includes:
A 420-meter span bridge crossing the South Saskatchewan River
Five new roadway interchanges
Three new railway grade separations
Multiple railway at-grade crossings
Eight kilometers of mainline freeway/expressway roadway
Significant stormwater systems
Contaminated site remediation
Multi-use pathway development
The presentation will provide discussion on the design/build process, updates on construction progression and challenges to date.
