Summer Construction Update

For Immediate Release – July 11, 2007

Below is a summary of Wesbild’s Construction Program on Burke Mountain for Summer 2007.

Infrastructure Construction Underway – We are well underway on our servicing work on our D8 and D10 parcels. We are hoping to have these areas substantially complete by Labour Day. Infrastructure Construction Upcoming – We have our approval from the City to proceed with servicing for D1, D5 and D11 and are in the process of tendering our servicing work for D1 and D5. We are hoping to begin this work in early August with it being complete in Spring 2008.

Bridges – We are intending to complete five bridge crossing during this year’s fisheries window. This includes crossings at Gislason & Coast Meridian, two on the future David Avenue extension and two on the future Soball Collector extension. You have probably noticed that we have begun clearing these areas and work will begin in August.

Compensation Projects – We have three compensation projects we are starting work on. This includes replacing two traditional culverts with box culverts to help promote fish passage in the Smiling Creek area and the creation of a salmon rearing pond in the Hyde Creek area. Harper Fill Site – Similar to last year, we are utilizing our fill site on Harper Road and you will see lots of activity around this area over the summer months.

Day to Day – We are trying to keep our dust and noise as under control as possible. This includes regular street sweeping and communication with our contractors. If you have any concerns about our construction program please do not hesitate to contact Jennifer Derbyshire at or 604-945-1131.
