We are very proud of the work our team did on the diversion chanel for CN in March 2022. This is one of the largest of it's kind in North America and is a part of the rebuild from the 2021/2022 floods in Southern BC.
The Diversion Channel truely started with replacing the bridge that was washed out in the floods of 2021.
After prepping the site, our crew got to work framing up the massive base of the Diversion Channel.
While the base was being framed, our welders were busy installing the spillway to handle all the water gathered.
Next to the base, the 12 foot high wall was next to be framed.
Each panel required pilings and braces to go in first all teh way down to the river below.
Just in case the spillway ever jammed, this emergency culvert was installed as additional protection for the bridge.
Our welders had a tall task of intalling all the panels, but the results were impressive.
Ready for the Rain
After 2 massive pours, the forms came off to reveal the structure below, just in time to start gathering all the runoff water coming down the mountain.
