QUEBEC — Canam’s Structal-Bridges unit has secured three contracts worth nearly $50 million to fabricate the steel structures for bridges in Quebec and Alberta.

Components for the two bridges in Quebec and structure in Edmonton will be fabricated at Structal-Bridges plant in Quebec City.

The Alberta contract was awarded under a joint venture with Rapid-Span Structures Ltd., a bridge fabricator in Western Canada. It will provide 14 steel highway bridges, including two 322-metre structures across the North Saskatchewan River.

Spans will be delivered beginning next spring.

The contract in Notre-Dame-des-Pins will provide 88 steel girders for a 326-metre structure across the Gilbert River. The steel will be delivered by the end of 2013.

Canam will also make steel components for a second bridge and a footbridge as part of the Highway 73 expansion.

Roxboro Excavation of Montreal has also ordered 66 steel girders and other components for the reconstruction of the Highway 20 overpass at the exit of the Pierre Laporte Bridge in Levis, Que. Built in 1965, the 317-metre structure spans two highways.

“Our expertise will be put to full use as we take on these new challenges,” stated Structal-Bridges vice-president Robin Lapointe.

Structal-Bridges is a North American manufacturer of steel bridges, structural bearings and expansion joints. It operates plants in Quebec City, Laval and New Hampshire and occupies a section of the Canam Group plants in Saint-Gedeon-de-Beauce and Point of Rocks, Md.

Canam Group (TSX:CAM) operates 20 plants across North America and participates in thousands of construction projects annually. It employs nearly 3,500 people in Canada, the United States, Romania, India and China.
