ITE Greater Vancouver: February Virtual Seminar – BC Highway Reinstatement Program Highway 5 – Category B Project

Virtual Event Virtual Event
Free

ITE Greater Vancouver is pleased to have Victor Wang, P.Eng. and  Jonathan Ho, P.Eng., PTOE, from Kiewit Engineering Group Canada ULC present on the BC Highway Reinstatement Program Highway 5 – Category B Project at 12:00 pm, February 21, 2024. The virtual seminar will be free and online.

November 15, 2023, marked the two-year anniversary of the atmospheric river and subsequent historic flooding and landslides that caused extensive damage to the highway and across the Province of British Columbia. Less than two years after the historic event and two months ahead of schedule, all final permanent bridges on Highway 5 at Jessica, Juliet, and Bottletop are open to public traffic in permanent four-lane configuration, as the Project reached substantial completion. Highway 5 is now more resilient and reliable, supporting the movement of people and goods along this important corridor. The new bridges are built to withstand high water levels by using deep-pile footings and longer spans. Large rock protection has been added to protect the bridges from erosion and scour. Trees, shrubs and grasses have also been planted to encourage stream-side re-vegetation and support overall restoration of aquatic and land habitat. In total, the alliance team and local Indigenous communities planted around 4,500 native plants at these sites to help return the environment to its natural landscape.

Victor Wang is a Professional Engineer with 30 years of experience and expertise in transportation engineering and planning. He also possesses the Master of Engineering degree with strong background in different phases of infrastructure projects. Victor has played major roles in full project-delivery cycle of infrastructure projects including planning, design, and construction, with specific focus on P3, Design/Build (DB) and Design/Build/Finance/Operate (DBFO) projects. Victor was the Discipline Engineering Manager of the BC Highway Reinstatement Program – Highway 5 Project.

Jonathan Ho has over 15 years of experience in transportation engineering and planning. He was involved in several major transportation engineering and planning projects throughout British Columbia, which included the George Massey Tunnel Replacement Project, Pattullo Bridge Replacement Project, Highway 99 and Steveston Interchange Project, and the Highway 91/17 Improvement Project. Jonathan has also provided traffic management services on numerous infrastructure upgrades projects throughout Greater Vancouver. Jonathan was the Civil and Traffic Management Design Lead on the BC Highway Reinstatement Program – Highway 5 Project.
