Early work and site preparation activity continues into 2019 in advance of the start of construction anticipated this summer. Leading up to construction more visible activity will be happening on the west and east shores. All work is conducted in accordance with City regulations and the regulatory requirements as part of the Parks Canada Detailed Impact Analysis (DIA).
As we get closer to the start of construction the project team is holding two near neighbour meetings to update you on the latest information. At the meetings the project team will be talking about:
- Laydown areas – what construction will look like in your neighbourhoods
- Early work continuing into 2019 – what site work will be happening and when
- Noise mitigation – early and long term options
- Site safety – fencing the work area, on-site staff
- Demolition of abandoned houses (west approach only)
- Tree removal
