Manitoba First Nation celebrates new lifeline in their community

November 26, 2015

The Members of western Manitoba’s Tootinaowaziibeeng Treaty Reserve had been waiting 45 years to have a safe bridge replacement to connect the two halves of the community. Newer, larger water trucks and other heavy vehicles were dangerously stressing their old bridge and it had been condemned. Time was of the essence. A new Modular Bridge with a pedestrian walkway from AIL was the perfect solution.

Steel bridge easier and less costly than its concrete twin

November 25, 2015

Way out in Wyoming, there’s a tale of two bridges that bears telling. These bridges sit tightly, side by side, each spanning the same distance on parallel rail spurs. Each doing the same job of allowing vehicular traffic to pass under heavy coal trains enroute to the load-out facility at the generating plant.

Nimble AIL Sound Walls quiet a multi-purpose rail corridor

November 18, 2015

In Port Moody, British Columbia, the Klahanie Strata Council was concerned that the addition of the Evergreen Line LRT service to an existing CP Rail corridor would create even more unwanted noise for the property owners it represents. The AIL Sound Walls team consulted with the Council to come up with an effective sound mitigation solution that would be acceptable to both the Council and the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.

Super•Cor’s performance, savings sway NSTIR off concrete spec

September 15, 2015

Nova Scotia Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (NSTIR) had specified a concrete structure for a stream crossing on the new exit connector joining Highway 103 with Highway 3, at Ingramport, near Halifax. Knowing that our Super•Cor Arch would perform just as well and provide considerable savings, the AIL team went to work to prove their point.
