Deh Cho River Bridge, Ruskin Construction Ltd.

The Deh Cho River Bridge is a new 1.0 km long bridge crossing over the Mackenzie River in the Northwest Territories. Ruskin Construction Ltd. was subcontracted to install the foundation elements for the new bridge. Allnorth provided construction engineering services, including designs for the work bridge and cofferdams; installation procedures and lift plans; on-site surveying; quality management; and on-site quality control (QC) inspections.

Allnorth’s responsibilities for this project included:

  • Construction engineering
  • Project management
  • Quality control

About this infrastructure project

The Deh Cho River Bridge crosses the Mackenzie River near Fort Providence, Northwest Territories. Major construction began in the spring of 2008. When complete, this bridge will replace the operations of the Merv Hardie ferry (summer) and the Mackenzie River Ice Crossing (winter) that are currently used to cross the river at that location.
