Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: week of August 17, 2020

Site work on the Templeton Area Redevelopment continues. Work is now underway to create the Templeton Corridor and conduct early works in preparation for development of the future facility. Construction activities for this phase are scheduled to take place through mid-2021. Learn more about what to expect during construction here.

As work progresses, we remain committed to keeping you updated on all scheduled construction and onsite activities. Please encourage your neighbors to subscribe to these updates if they haven’t already by emailing [email protected].

OVERVIEW

Current project work is mainly comprised of utilities work—excavating utility trenches and removing and replacing utility infrastructure. Activities will also include work related to the preload process for the Terrace Street extension.

Our team regularly visits the site to monitor the project with our contractor, including noise and vibration levels, dust and air quality. We are committed to implementing mitigations that are proven effective and align with project requirements. We will continue to update the community with new information about mitigations as applicable. 

WEEK OF AUGUST 17: WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

Work this week includes:

  • Placement of lock blocks along the Terrace Street extension alignment in preparation for preload
  • Site grading along Templeton Street
  • Excavation for utility trenches
  • Removal and relocation of water main along Templeton Street
  • Installation of water meter chamber
  • Hauling gravel and sand to and from site - all gravel and sand hauled to the site meets environmental regulations

Regular onsite equipment includes excavators, backhoe loaders, haul trucks, concrete trucks, compacting equipment, forklift and a mobile crane. Broadband Travel Alarms are in use on regularly stationed equipment to reduce noise in the area. Please note however that traditional tonal alarms may still be heard on equipment and vehicles that are transiting to and from the site, or equipment that will be onsite for shorter durations. There are two pieces of equipment currently on site that are waiting to be fitted with broadband beepers—a yellow backhoe and a large dump truck. The backhoe was initially intended to be onsite for a short duration, but it will remain longer than initially intended, so it is being fitted with a broadband beeper. The dump truck has a different electrical system than the other equipment, so parts are on order.

Our contractor has water trucks attending the site regularly to suppress dust and has also added screening to the YVR / Burkeville perimeter fence line as an additional mitigation.

HOURS OF OPERATION & SCHEDULED ACTIVITIES

Construction takes place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Equipment and machinery are turned on after 7:30 a.m. An update will be provided if work is required outside of this timeframe.
