Build the Expo

The municipal authorities annonced in 1963 that the Expo 67 would take place on two islands in the middle of the Saint Lawrence river.

A year later, the city of Montreal, gave these two ilsand to this international exhibition.

We transported on the spot, in the space of 10 months, 15 million tons of rock and ground. It was a question of doubling the surface of the island St. Hélèna and of creating from nothing, the Notre-Dame island.

Trucks were obliged to use the Jacques-Cartier bridge. Later, in time to transport materials in the construction of pavilions, they crossed by the bridge of Concorde, builds specially for the Exhibition in the space of 18 months. At the time, this 10.5 million dollar bridge was one of the longest orthotropic bridges in the world.
