The all-season road construction from PR304 to Berens River was a massive undertaking consisting of 23 individual road segments and 9 bridges. In January 2011, Dillon Consulting in partnership with AECOM Canada and KGS Group was awarded the Contract to provide engineering services for contract administration and construction supervision. This project generated significant economic development opportunities for the Indigenous communities. They also gained a skilled, trained workforce that will provide benefits for years to come. Construction of a new road grade through the Canadian Shield required innovative techniques, tenacity, patience and general resilience to varying climatic conditions. Contractors worked with many challenges to complete the project. Communities that have waited generations for access finally acquired their road.
