With the Highway 5 Reinstatement Project being wrapped up in early 2024, we’ve been reflecting on some of the key highlights of this significant endeavour.

Following the severe rainfall events of 2021 that caused extensive flooding and washouts, Elevation’s Construction Services Group began working with the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure in 2022 to support the rehabilitation efforts. We were excited to join an excellent group of consultants and contractors as part of the CAT5 Alliance model.

Elevation Technical Services worked with the contractors to help successfully deliver the demolition and reconstruction of six new, more climate-resilient bridges. All participants did a great job finishing this project before its projected completion date.

Elevation’s staff provided daily construction management, project supervision, quality assurance, environmental advisorship, cost analysis, and reporting reviews. They worked closely with Indigenous community members to make accommodations in a culturally and environmentally sensitive manner.

Elevation thanks MoTI and the contractors, consultants, and Indigenous communities that we had the opportunity to work with on this project. This major rebuild process was ultimately a great success due to the collaborative efforts of all involved. As a result of everyone’s hard work, this stretch of Highway 5 will now be more resilient to extreme weather events.
