Vancouver street resurfacing

Location: Vancouver

General contractor: Granite Construction Co.

Owner/developer: City of Vancouver

Owner's representative: MacKay Sposito

This project involved resurfacing a number of streets throughout the city of Vancouver.

Due to the spread-out nature of the project, Granite Construction Co. faced a couple of challenges: moving equipment around efficiently and dealing with the public.

Granite moved the equipment around on trucks with a flatbed trailer the company had been using haul mix. This eliminated having to have an additional lowboy on site.

Granite paid workers to hand out notices and update the public regarding the schedule. This reduced traffic congestion and increased the level public awareness.

There were no recordable accidents or injuries for crews involved in the project.
