Bridge management strategy optimized for years to come

Similar to a new car needing oil changes, a new bridge requires regular inspection and maintenance. To support public safety across the decades, we need detailed inspections.

The City of Port Coquitlam brought us in as partners to develop an inspection and maintenance plan for the cable-stayed Coast Meridian Overpass. Our approach avoided public inconvenience by reducing traffic disruptions, as would have been the case in a more traditional bridge inspection. Our team of certified industrial rope-access climbers, who are also registered professional engineers, offered maximum value to the city.

This was the first detailed inspection of the bridge since it was built. Using the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure bridge inspection rating system, we delivered a comprehensive condition report. Our specialized access bridge engineering inspection team completed the task with minimal traffic disruptions and under the highest safety standards.

With our additionally developed 10-year maintenance program, the City of Port Coquitlam is better prepared to optimize a bridge management strategy for years to come.
