KPH Turcot, a partnership of Construction Kiewit Cie and Parsons Canada Ltée as members, as well as WSP Canada Inc. and Holcim (Canada) Inc. as participants, signed its final contract with the Québec Ministry of Transportation (MTQ) for the Turcot Interchange project.

“We bid this project because we understand the importance of improving one of Montréal’s busiest and most vital transportation connectors,” said KPH Turcot Deputy Project Director Sébastien Marcoux.

KPH Turcot is made up of many of the partners that successfully delivered the award-winning Autoroute 25 project.

“Our partnership believes in transparency at all levels and is committed to building this project with the strongest ethics and highest integrity,” Marcoux said. “Our Nobody Gets Hurt safety philosophy is one of the cornerstones of our commitment to employees. We are honored to be engineering and constructing this important project.”

The $3.7 billion Turcot program is the largest in MTQ’s history, and KPH Turcot’s design-build contract is the largest portion of the program. When completed, the carbon-neutral project will provide 6.7 kilometers of multiuse trails, reduce maintenance costs, improve links between neighbourhoods, include 31.5 hectares of green space and lower noise levels for nearby residents.

Also as part of the project, 145-lane-kilometers of roadways will be designed and constructed, and Canadian National Railway mainline tracks will be relocated. The project is scheduled to be completed by 2020.
