Highway 17 Garden River - Garden River, Ontario
The Ontario Ministry of Transportation selected a Kiewit-led joint venture to construct this C$53 million design-build project. The project included a 16 kilometre four-lane divided highway and 11 bridges east of Sault St. Marie.
Extensive pre-loading and monitoring was required at many structure sites and through two swamp areas due to the extremely challenging soil conditions. The finished project included 2,000,000 cubic metres of rock and overburden; preparation and placement of 1,100,000 cubic metres of granular base materials; and 5,000 cubic metres of concrete.
