Begun in late 2010, Matcon Civil has completed three contracts and is currently 90% complete on our fourth contract, which have encompassed filling, preloading, grading, underground utilities, new road construction, the installation of landscaped medians and widening of and Marine Way, one of Vancouver’s main transportation corridors. As with our other projects that impact arterial corridors, Matcon Civil coordinates closely with the City of Vancouver to ensure our traffic plans minimize impacts to both commuters and local residents.
