Hatch Mott MacDonald is leading a joint venture with MMM Group to design and manage the $2.46 billion Port Mann/Highway 1 project near Vancouver, B.C.

The B.C. government announced it will enter a fixed-price contract with Peter Kiewit and Flatiron Constructors to design and build the new 10-lane crossing, and Hatch Mott Macdonald and MMM Group will lead 12 firms on behalf of the Kiewit-Flatiron joint venture. They will be doing the design of all onshore works and project management. As previously reported, TY Lin is the design consultant of the main span bridge.

The project is the largest highway infrastructure project in Canada planned for the next few years. It involves the twinning and replacement of the Port Mann Bridge that links Vancouver over the Fraser River eastward to mainland B.C., as well as the widening of 37 kilometres of Highway 1. It includes the reconstruction of 13 interchanges, 45 onshore bridges, and a total reconstruction of the Cape Horn/Lougheed Highway Interchange at the west end of the Port Mann Bridge.
