Jury Comments: “This project’s team found a unique technical solution using bridge slide technology to improve the performance of a 103-year old infrastructure. By using silent piling they also minimized the impact on the surrounding residential area. The project shows a remarkable understanding of the strategic significance of rail and public transit in our communities.”
Juror Comments: “The engineers brought harmony to a project that had multi-faceted conflicting and complex needs. It involved changes to 2.5 kilometres of roads and included the replacement of three at-grade rail crossings with new vehicle overpasses. Pedestrian and cycle trails and bridges, street lighting, and the relocation of utilities were involved.
