A HALF-CENTURY OF COLD-REGIONS CONSTRUCTION

A review of construction practices in cold regions of the United States and Canada since 1925 reveals that, despite current emphasis on work in these areas, the industry has successfully completed a large number of projects under adverse cold conditions throughout this 50-yr period. Over 50 North American cold-regions projects are reviewed, including buildings, excavation, piling, roadway, bridge, dam, canal, and waterworks projects. Mention is made of cold weather construction practices in foreign countries, and a current project, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline, is noted. /ASCE/
