Mainroad covers Port Mann, Hwy 1, Alex Fraser among other major routes
Mainroad Lower Mainland Contracting LP, which is responsible for maintenance along the highways and bridges around Metro Vancouver, took home the Deputy Minister’s Contractor of the Year award in road and bridge maintenance.
The contracting firm, which responds to problems on the Port Mann, Alex Fraser and Pattullo bridges among many other primary routes, captured the award for managing busy highways amid challenging weather conditions in the Lower Mainland area.
Transportation minister Mary Polak said the award highlights excellent work done under “very challenging weather conditions in the Lower Mainland last winter and the proactive approach it took to meet those challenges.”

Mainroad uses advanced weather reports that can identify problems and responds during frequent freezing incidents in the Lower Mainland.
Their ability to respond quickly to customer complaints and their volunteer work to donate free repairs and upgrades won praise.
“Time and time again, the exceptional workers at Mainroad Contracting have proven they can overcome road conditions of all kinds in the name of keeping Surrey residents safe,” said Surrey MLA Kevin Falcon.
The Deputy Minister’s Contractor of the Year awards recognize excellence in road construction and is hosted by the B.C. Road Builders & Heavy Construction Association. This is the ninth year for the awards.
A new award for safety innovation excellence was given out this year apart from the other categories of grading, paving, bridges & structures, and highway maintenance work in the province.
