Langford awards Leigh Road project contract

Scansa Construction Ltd. submits winning off-ramp bid

Work on the final phase of the Leigh Road interchange project, construction of the southbound off-ramp from the Trans-Canada Highway, is heading towards its final stretch.

Langford council voted Monday to award the contract for the project to Scansa Construction Ltd., one of six companies that submitted bids.

Scansa came in lowest at roughly $2.43 million, followed by Allterra Construction Ltd. ($2.678 million), Windley Contracting Ltd. ($2.804 million), Jacob Bros. Construction Inc. ($2.845 million), Milner Group Ventures Inc. ($3.078 million) and Don Mann Excavating Ltd. ($3.2 million).

All of the bids were scrutinized by WSP Canada Ltd., who also prepared the tender documents for this phase.

“We hope to have the off-ramp done by Christmas, if all goes according to plan,” said Michelle Mahovlich, Langford director of engineering.

She anticipates work to begin on the project after the August long weekend.

Besides construction of the off-ramp, this phase also includes a new southbound acceleration lane onto the highway at Westshore Parkway and the closure of the nearby Goldstream Avenue highway exit. The closure of the Spencer Road access to the TCH has already taken place.

The cost of the project is being split evenly between the B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure and the City of Langford, with the City’s share coming from its roads development cost charge reserve. The Scansa bid fell within the budgeted amount and the project was included in the City’s 2015 budget.
