Over the past two weeks, Interwest Construction Inc. (ICI), completed the final shaping of the ditches, placing shoulder rock, installing the remaining erosion control matting, striping the roadway and spraying the turf establishment seeding along the roadway embankments at the MP 10 Canyon Creek bridge site and the MP 4.5 Engineered Log Jam (ELJs) site. This week ICI will install the guardrail and the permanent signage at the Canyon Creek bridge and continue preparing for winter shutdown of the project.
