City names PCL Construction Management Inc as Construction Manager for Green Line Utility Relocation project
The City is announcing the start of a Green Line utility relocation project to relocate utilities that will conflict with the main Green Line construction. The City is prioritizing utilities located in parts of Beltline east and Downtown.
Preconstruction planning will begin this spring with construction starting fall 2021 with a project timeline of two to three years. As preconstruction planning begins and a schedule developed, we will communicate more details about specific impacts throughout the area.
To manage the relocation of City utilities, and to help us schedule and coordinate the relocation of third-party utilities for electricity, phone, cable and fibre optic, and other services, The City selected PCL Construction Management Inc. as the Construction Management (CM) contractor.
The utility relocation project is an important milestone on the Green Line journey, says Green Line General Manager Michael Thompson. “This essential advanced work project will make way for the Green Line by relocating shallow and deep embedded utilities in some areas of Beltline east and Downtown that will conflict with main construction.”
Thompson says The City is committed to supporting business and residents. “The City is undertaking a review of its stakeholders potentially impacted by the project in Beltline east and Downtown to ensure they are engaged and informed, and any necessary mitigation is considered. The City is committed to working with businesses and residents in the area and has a team that will be equipped to respond to public concerns, address issues and support timely resolution.”
Since 2017, Green Line has been conducting utility relocations and other enabling works and early works projects along the southeast alignment from Shepard to Ramsay/Inglewood stations. While the current project is much larger in scope, the southeast projects provided a valuable opportunity to learn from businesses and communities impacted by the earlier enabling works.
