HighLine's highway division has a proud history of many successful projects. We are relentless in our efforts to consistently stay ahead of industry standards and expectations. The importance of highway lighting and its infrastructure can sometimes be overlooked and taken for granted but without the street lighting, traffic signals and signage, our highways would be less efficient and a much more dangerous place to travel.
HighLine has experience and expertise in the following highway electrical components:
- Sign structure (Highway guide signs)
- Street lighting (Signal Davit poles, Double davit poles, High mast poles)
- Traffic signals
- Pole erection (street lights, sign structures)
- Aerial services and lifting
- Underground locating
North East Anthony Henday
This Electrical and Signage Project is scheduled for completion the fall of 2016 and will encompass 40 km of roadway and 43 bridge structures including 2 crossing the North Saskatchewan River completing the Anthony Henday Ring Road loop. This is a joint venture project for HighLine, splitting $ 38,000,000 nearly equally, which will be HighLine's largest project to date. This extensive project requires a large amount of manpower, as well as the use of many pieces of our specialized equipment.
Airport Trail Tunnel
The tunnel is 620 meters long. It has a six lane roadway underneath the new airport runway. This tunnel connects Barlow Trail to 36 Street NE. There were 29 concrete street lighting poles installed with each one weighing 3820 lbs. (Stresscrete). They needed these poles to be concrete because the radar was too close. The concrete poles were installed on the east side of the tunnel, up to and on 36 street (on both sides). We used a new product call polecrete to stand the concrete poles. It took (87) 5 gallon pails to put up the concrete poles. We installed 24 new 15m steel poles on the west side of the tunnel up to and on Barlow Trail (both sides). We installed 5 (Vermac) Digital Message Boards and 4 directional Blank Out signs. We also had to get specialty built brackets for the 30 lane control signs that we installed inside the tunnel (Aaron Machine Shop). Each control signs had to be equipped with a building management system control.
