    Pre-Construction Site Preparation Work

    As part of the phase 1 project work, the site will require preparation work ahead of construction. This preparation work will consist of tree removal, tree trimming and stockpiling of tree material for use within the rehabilitated Mud Creek channel corridor as habitat enhancement features. An example of a habitat enhancement feature would be the use of a partially buried tree log to create a riffle in the rehabilitated Mud Creek.

    Construction is anticipated to commence during the summer of 2020, and would include:

    • Tunnel two new culverts under the CN railway embankment at a lower elevation relative to the existing culvert;
    • Rehabilitate and retain the existing culvert under the CN railway embankment;
    • Tree removals and tree replacement with naturalized landscaping;
    • Mud Creek channel works including widening and lowering channel to tie into the two new lower culverts at the CN railway embankment; and
    • Environmental enhancements integrated throughout the channel works.
