Crescent Valley company one of B.C.’s best road builders
Interoute Construction Ltd. of Crescent Valley has won this year’s Deputy Minister’s Contractor of the Year Award for its paving work on the Fernie Ski Hill project.
The company was recognized for its work on the $5.5-million project to resurface Highway 3, from 12 kilometres east of Elko to Fernie Ski Hill Road, and for delivering a high-quality product under very tight timelines.
The Deputy Minister’s Contractor of the Year Awards recognize construction and maintenance companies demonstrating excellence in the categories of grading, paving, bridges and structures, and highway maintenance work throughout the province.
“This award is well deserved and highlights the outstanding work Interoute Construction has done to improve Highway 3,” said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Blair Lekstrom. “The work that was done will make travel along this important corridor safer for residents, tourists, the forest industry and commercial transport vehicles.”
The ninth annual awards were hosted by the B.C. Road Builders & Heavy Construction Association on Dec. 2 in Victoria.
The award runners-up in the paving category were Peters Bros. Construction Ltd. of Penticton for work on Highway 2, along with other South Peace paving projects, and Columbia Bitulithic of Coquitlam, for work on the Highway 13, 0 Avenue to 56 Avenue Project.
