Operating Company:

Adventure Construction


BC Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure

Contract Value:


Date Completed:

September 2016

Connecting the coastal First Nations community of Lax Kw’alaams with the only barge access point at Tuck Inlet, the Tuck Inlet Road was upgraded and paved by Adventure Construction during the summer of 2016.

The project required 130,000 tonnes of IGB base aggregates, 25,000 tonnes of asphalt paving, and 2 bridge replacements, as well as line marking, site grading, and landscaping.

Adventure worked very closely with the Lax Kw’alaams band to maximize local benefits. Adventure employed over 21 local members of the band on the project, with a peak of 70 people working daily. The remote location made logistics a daily challenge, as all equipment, aggregates, asphalt, and construction components were barged in and crew access was by water taxi.

The Project was completed in Sept 2016 on budget and ahead of schedule, and Adventure was awarded the Deputy Minister’s Contractor of the Year Award.
