In this week's preview, we look at some of the stories we'll be covering in the Journal of Commerce for the week of October 12th, 2015. The city of Vancouver is looking at tearing down its viaducts. The city has proposed a $200 million proposed plan to replace the viaducts with an at-grade road network which officials say would be cheaper to maintain and more resilient during earthquakes.
Staff writer Russell Hixson has a story about Alberta's auditor general investigating major delays in construction of provincial education infrastructure, and we have another story about the three teams shortlisted to build the city of Calgary's P3 Ring Road project.
Stephen Bauld has a column about standardizing approaches to major project procurement, and check out Daily Commercial News staff writer Lindsey Cole's story about Canadian Construction Association president Michael Atkinson's recent speech at the Canadata East conference about rising federal awareness of infrastructure issues.
