The Cree Nation of Mistissini needed a bridge across the Uupaachikus Pass to connect the communities within their territory. Stantec designed an innovative, 160 m long glue-laminated (glulam) wood beam semi-continuous arched bridge. Beyond being safe, the structure is also aesthetically appealing, ecological, and durable. Construction of this wooden bridge – one of Canada’s longest – involved the active participation of the local community and strongly promoted the region’s socio-economic development.
