TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS

EnviroConsult Inc. develops baseline Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA) and Environmental Construction and Operations Plans (ECO Plans) for roadway and bridge projects. We have qualified Biologists and Environmental Scientists on staff and are able to satisfy the most recent regulatory requirements for watercourse crossings. We provide you with the information you need to obtain project approval.

Based on a solid understanding of potential project-related impacts, ECO Plans are written to provide construction and roadway engineers and contractors with effective mitigation measures to reduce negative effects on the environment. The ECO-Plan identifies appropriate topsoil handling requirements and erosion control measures, seed mixes, wildlife mitigation, and protection of and/or restoration requirements to ensure no-net-loss of fisheries and aquatic resources.

City of Calgary, Land Use and Mobility, Alberta Canada
Developed an Environmental Report and an Environmental Protection Plan for the Deerfoot Trail Upgrade and Extension Project between Douglasdale Blvd. and the Bow River. Soils, vegetation, rare plant and wildlife surveys were conducted as were fall and spring spawning surveys on the mainstem of the Bow. The project included evaluation of impacts, development of mitigation measures, and liaison with bridge engineers regarding specific environmental protection measures to be followed to minimize impacts.

City of Calgary, Land Use and Mobility, Alberta Canada
Provided environmental inspection and monitoring during construction of the Deerfoot Trail Upgrade and Extension Project. Inspection included reviewing various contractor ECO Plans and Sediment and Erosion Control Plans for compliance. Daily environmental inspections were carried out and weekly meetings were held to provide clarification and help ensure construction activities remained in compliance with the Client's regulatory requirements.

Graham Construction and Engineering Ltd., Calgary Alberta Canada
Developed an Environmental Report for the 96 Avenue NE Interchange and Roadway Extension project in Calgary Alberta.

DWL Engineering and Alberta Transportation and Utilities, Calgary Alberta Canada
Completed an Environmental and Historical Resources Overview for Stoney Trail north of Calgary, Alberta as a component of the Stoney Trail Functional Planning Study. Descriptions of the biophysical characteristics and historical resources potential along the 25 km RoW were compiled, and the information was used to conduct a preliminary impact assessment and to develop mitigation measures to reduce potential project-related impacts to an acceptable level.

The City of Calgary, Alberta Canada
Completed an Environmental Overview of the Beddington Trail Expansion Project in Calgary, Alberta. A description of the biophysical characteristics along the RoW was compiled including rare plants, and the information was used to conduct a preliminary impact evaluation and develop environmental protection measures to reduce potential project-related impacts.

Completed an Initial Environmental Evaluation including mitigation strategies for the Macleod Trail - Canyon Meadows Drive Interchange project where it intersects Fish Creek Provincial Park. This project involved a biophysical assessment of the project area, evaluation of potential project-related impacts, and development of mitigation strategies to lessen potential impacts from construction and operation of the interchange. Elders from the Tsuu T'ina First Nation were invited to review the proposed development site.

EBA Engineering and the City of Lethbridge, Alberta Canada
Completed a Wildlife Mitigation Plan for the Scenic Drive widening project in Lethbridge Alberta. The project involved review of wildlife habitat adjacent to the proposed roadway, evaluation of ungulate road crossing locations, and development of mitigation measures to reduce vehicular/deer interactions. Open houses were scheduled with the residents of Lethbridge to obtain their views and incorporate them into the Wildlife Mitigation Plan.

Reid Crowther and Partners Ltd. and the City of Calgary, Alberta Canada
Completed an Environmental Report for the Highway 22X and Deerfoot Interchange project for the City of Calgary and Reid Crowther and Partners Ltd. The project involved review of biophysical characteristics and a soils survey within the Bow River Valley, an inspection of spawning sites below the Highway 22X bridge, evaluation of stormwater management options, and development of mitigation measures in an Environmental Protection Plan.

Reid Crowther and Partners Limited and the City of Calgary, Alberta Canada
Conducted an Environmental Overview of a Light Rail Transit crossing location over Fish Creek in Fish Creek Provincial Park. The project involved a Fisheries Habitat Assessment, vegetation and soil surveys and review of impacts to the aquatics and fisheries resource and movements of wildlife under the bridge.

The Transportation Project Office, Calgary Alberta Canada
Conducted an Environmental Overview of a pedestrian bridge crossing over Fish Creek in Fish Creek Provincial Park. The project involved a fisheries habitat assessment, vegetation and soil surveys and review of impacts on the aquatics and fisheries resource and wildlife movements under the proposed pedestrian bridge. An application was also made under the Navigable Waters Protection Act .

City of Calgary Streets / Alberta Transportation
Reviewed various Contract Documents and Terms of References for the Deerfoot Trail Extension and Upgrade Project including Contractor ECO-Plans, Sediment and Erosion Control Plans, and Monitoring Plans to ensure construction plans and activities were in compliance with all City, AT and regulatory requirements.
