Bringing a boarder crossing facility back up to a higher standard

Located in northern British Columbia, the Pleasant Camp Port of Entry is a highway border crossing separating Canada and the US. The original border crossing, built in 1952, was at the end of its service life and a fuel spill in 1987 required an extensive soil remediation program. Plus, water quality did not meet current standards. After struggling for years to determine a best path forward, Public Works Government Services Canada (PWGSC) brought us in to find a solution.

We reviewed background information and established priorities. The end decision was to install all new services for infrastructure designated to remain and to provide capped services for a new future Port of Entry Building. New services included communication, fuel, water well, water treatment plant, a new Site Services Building for utility power and emergency power, and new buried services throughout the station. Once the new services were installed and operational, the existing services and structures were demolished and soil remediation was completed.

The final phase will entail the replacement of the existing border crossing building and the construction of new approach and exit lanes and site lighting.
