Project Highlights

T2 Utility Engineers (T2ue) completed a Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) investigation for Giffels / MTO on the QEW from Brant Street to Burloak Drive in Burlington, Ontario. The purpose of this investigation was to identify the location of the existing underground utilities in order to facilitate the design of the widening of the QEW to accept HOV lanes. HOV lanes were added to further promote the use of carpooling along this major highway corridor.

Overall, the investigation was successful in confirming and further refining the location of the utilities within the areas of concern.  All parties were able to confidently rely on the utility information provided.
