SAULT STE. MARIE, ON, Nov. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - The St. Mary's River Bridge Company (SMRBC) a subsidiary of The Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL), is pleased to announce that the call to tender for the Canadian Plaza Redevelopment Project which includes the construction of the garage for the International Bridge Authority (IBA) and the construction of the Duty Free Store as well as the ramp widening and other related civil works was won by George Stone and Sons Inc, a local Sault Ste. Marie general contractor, for $10.9 million.
This major step forward in the Canadian Plaza Redevelopment Project was made possible following discussions and mediation involving the acquisition of all properties required to proceed with this phase of the Project.
As mentioned by Micheline Dubé, President and Chief Executive Officer at St. Mary's River Bridge Company… "a key highlight in this phase of the project will be the widening and connection of the plaza ramp to Carmen's Way, which will greatly improve the flow of commercial and general traffic at the plaza."
With the Canadian Plaza Redevelopment Project now in full gear, SMRBC has created a dedicated Internet blog site to keep the local population informed on all aspects of the project including detailed project description, punctual progress of the construction with visual updates, public notices on detours, lane closures and related news.
The blog site (www.ssmbridge.ca) will be online on Tuesday November 5, allowing interested residents to visit and to register if they wish to get instant automatic updates by email or via Twitter as the project unfolds.
