Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: Week of May 25, 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, followed by landscaping. 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)

Work this week will shift toward the Templeton path this week, which may result in elevated noise levels in Burkeville.  See below for all this week’s construction details. Watering efforts continue to help keep dust levels low.

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 25, 2021: WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT 

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

New this week:

  • Install the two pedestrian bridges along the future meandering gravel path (work is now scheduled for May 25 and 26 and is not expected to be noisy).
  • Complete path grading over the newly installed culvert at the south end of the project.
  • Install forms and pour curbs along Templeton Street.
  • Place and compact drainage pumice along Terrace Street extension (deferred from last week).

Continuing this week:

  • Complete road base and curb installs for new Terrace Street extension.
  • 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.
