Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: Week of May 10, 2021

Site work on the Templeton Area Redevelopment continues, with ongoing construction of the Templeton Corridor. Construction activity for this corridor is nearing completion; currently scheduled for end of June 2021. Learn more about what to expect during construction here. This week's update follows below.

Thank you to all our neighbours for your support and patience as we work to complete this project safely and in a timely manner.

GENERAL INFORMATION (new updates this week)

The final layout is beginning to take shape as regrading of the area to be landscaped nears completion and placement of road base for the new Templeton Street extension begins. See below for all this week’s construction details. Crews have increased watering efforts to help keep dust levels low and we continue doing our best to put in dust mitigations measures where possible.

If you have questions about the project and would like to connect with our community liaison Pam by phone or in person, please email to [email protected] or call 604-561-2836.

WEEK OF MAY 10, 2021: WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT 

Areas of focus this week (all weather dependent) include:

New this week:

  • Place road base for new Terrace Street extension.
  • Place and compact drainage pumice along Terrace Street extension.
  • Install the two pedestrian bridges along the future meandering gravel path.

Continuing this week:

  • Complete regrading along Templeton multi-use path and along future development site; this work causes noise and vibration, within approved limits (work extended to mid-May, using smaller equipment, which takes a bit longer but causes less vibration).
  • Complete landscape area regrading along the Templeton (final week).
  • Dust monitoring and watering as necessary. 
  • Drainage monitoring.
  • Vehicles and equipment moving throughout the site.

Onsite equipment includes excavators, backhoe loaders, haul trucks, concrete trucks, compacting equipment, a forklift and a mobile crane. Broadband travel alarms are in use on regularly stationed equipment to reduce noise in the area. Traditional tonal alarms may still be heard on equipment and vehicles that travel to and from the site, or equipment that will be onsite for shorter durations.

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 and most work is complete before sunset. An update will be provided if work is required outside of this timeframe.

Please note plans, activities and onsite equipment are subject to change based on evolving project needs and weather. Given the increased frequency of rain, workers may need to come to the site to monitor erosion and ensure the proper flood protections are performing adequately outside of the normal hours of operation.
