What to expect - Smith Cove Park

Construction is underway

Since December 2017, crews have:

  • Staged and mobilized equipment on site
  • Established the exit pit and accessed the existing pipe

What to expect:

  • After pipe assembly is complete, a drill rig will be used to pull the pipeline from 32nd Avenue West to Smith Cove Park
  • The contractor will restore the work area before the end of the project
  • Public access to the north end of the Smith Cove athletic field will be maintained
  • People will notice increased noise and construction activity in Smith Cove Park
  • Construction equipment such as drilling rigs, trucks, mud plants, cranes and excavators are located at the worksite
  • Occasional short delays for deliveries on 23rd Avenue West – access to businesses will be maintained
  • Flaggers and signs will help traffic and trail users pass by the work area safely
  • Park users can find construction fliers posted in a flier box on the fence
