Description:  The provincial government will enter into a fixed-price contract with the joint venture of Peter Kiewit Sons Co. Ltd. and Flatiron Constructors Canada Limited to design and build the new, 10-lane Port Mann Bridge and Highway 1 widening project. The contract with Kiewit-Flatiron ensures cost overruns or construction delays are the responsibility of the contractor. All costs will be recovered by electronic tolls.

The towers will be approximately 75m tall above deck level (total height approx 163m from top of footing). The main span (between the towers) will be 470 meters long, which will be the second longest cable-stayed span in the Western Hemisphere. The main bridge (between the end of the cables) will have a length of 850 meters with two towers and 288 cables.
 
GTI Round Plastic Duct® and GTI Flat Plastic Duct® were chosen for reliability, quaility and performance. GTI Bar Supports will be utilized in the bridge superstructure.
