Project Profile: Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge

02/16/21

The Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge gets traffic from approximately 5,200 vehicles per day. The bridge was constructed in 1967 and was due for updates and maintenance, including replacement of decks and pier repairs. Our Construction Quality Verification team in Kingston has been providing quality control for the Ontario Ministry of Transportation, Aecon Group, and McIntosh Perry. Concrete and grout quality is one of the many factors our staff regularly monitor on this major project. These tests confirm whether the delivered materials meet the required construction specifications. For example, just a small change in water to cement ratio will diminish the strength of the cement making the concrete structurally unsuitable for the task.  Small issues caught early will avoid bigger problems later.

The bridge rehabilitation will benefit the surrounding Prince Edward County and Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory for generations to come. We are proud to have been a part of this project that will benefit the community.

Our five locations allow us to collaborate with varied clients in many different sectors across Canada. Interested in what other services we offer? Visit our website to learn more.
