Canadian Forest Products Ltd. (Canfor) engaged Allnorth to provide civil engineering services for the Omineca Bridge Repair Project.

The Omineca River bridge was constructed in the late 1990’s, north of Ft. St. James (east of Takla Lake), British Columbia. It is a multi-span bridge consisting of 18.288 m spans with timber decks on driven pile piers and abutments. In the spring of 2021, a large log jam had built up and caused the river to wash out the low chain approaches. This also caused some damage to the foundation piles under the first span. Canfor engaged Allnorth to provide the civil engineering to get the bridge back in service.

Initially, Canfor requested Allnorth to complete an inspection and survey in order to provide recommendations for repair of the bridge. Upon Canfor’s review of the recommendations, Allnorth was engaged for the engineering and design of the repair, which included the addition of three new spans.

Canfor also requested support for construction services, quality management and bridge certification. Allnorth provided on-site construction monitoring, as and when engineering support, and survey services throughout the extent of the project.
