Reconstruction of the road on the right bank of the La Gabelle power station
Shawinigan Sud, QC G8N 6W1
Reconstruction of the La Gabelle dam road over a distance of 2 km on the right bank.
This project consisted of:
- Rainwater drainage
- Earth moving
- Placement of aggregate and asphalt
The existing bridge over the Milette stream was also demolished and replaced by a prefabricated culvert.
One of the major elements of this project was the construction of a sheet-piling retaining wall 330 metres long.
Environmental factors were a constant concern on the job site, because of the Milette stream, which flows into the St-Maurice River.
