Interior Roads Ltd. (IRL) has been in operation since 1988 and currently services Highway Maintenance Service Areas 16 and 17 in B.C.’s Interior, an area that stretches from Williams Lake to Bella Coola to Spences Bridge. Through the last decade, we have strived to provide high levels of cost-efficient services in a manner that safeguards the most important objective of highway maintenance — public safety.
IRL is a member of The Dawson Group, which includes the respected Dawson Construction Ltd. and Eagle Rock Construction Ltd. Both companies have been instrumental in building B.C.’s transportation and civil infrastructure. Dawson Construction Ltd., in particular, has been in operation since 1922 and has been involved in many key B.C. infrastructure projects over the decades, including the construction of the Coquihalla Highway, the Granville and Burrard Street bridges in Vancouver, and sections of the Yellowhead Highway in central B.C.
IRL is keenly aware that public safety is what our business is about. B.C. residents — from students on school busses, and logging truck drivers to commuters and families touring on vacation — are entitled to know they are as safe as possible while driving our highways. At IRL, safety drives our decision making, not just for the public but for our operational staff as well. We recognize we have a duty to safeguard not only the travelling public but our team of highly trained operators who so often put themselves in front of nature’s ferocity.
We pride ourselves on the efficient maintenance of our local roads and highways. Using innovative technologies and products, a diverse fleet of specialized maintenance equipment and real-time weather forecasting, we provide maintenance where and when it is needed.
