The recently completed cable-stayed bridge in the Province of Ontario, Canada is an important part of the Trans-Canada Highway.
The bridge was recognized recently by Roads & Bridges Magazine as one of the most significant elements of the Canadian transportation system. Located within the Trans-Canada Highway means the highway reaches more than 7,800 km of highway routes that connect all of the 10 of the country’s provinces and territories from coast to coast to coast.
This bridge replaced a 40-year-old steel plate girder bridge with piers in the water in the need to be removed. The new signature structure is the first of its kind in Ontario. It was built in two phases by Ferrovial Agroman Canada and JV partner BOT Construction. Over $100 million of goods are transported each day over the bridge. Sergio Cantero (Project Director) and the crew in Nipigon accompanied Ontario Ministry of Transportation in opening all lanes to traffic in Fall of 2018.
This award has been granted by Roads & Bridges magazine, a 111-year old trade publication. As the leading business-to-business media brand covering the transportation construction and maintenance marketplace it reaches over 62,000 subscribers monthly through the print editions of the magazine and 55,000+ online subscribers receive the weekly E-Newsletter.
Within the last 5 years, Ferrovial Agroman Canada will soon have completed the construction of three of the most important projects in Ontario. The experience and references Ferrovial Agroman team has in Canada (which included the Nipigon River Bridge) enabled the team to recently short-list for the QEW Credit River Project based on the Ferrovial Agroman references and personnel; aligned for future projects in Ontario.
