Oceanfront Phase 1 Communications Utilities Aug 2018

The work is scheduled to begin August 7, 2018 and will continue through to December 31, 2018.

Locals who frequent the area and visitors to the zone will need to be aware of a number of impacts as a result of the construction:

  • Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday, with after-hours and weekends as required in accordance with applicable District of Squamish bylaws.
  • Dewatering due to the high water table will be required, and may result in a rotten egg odour that is often present in local groundwater. Regular water quality monitoring will be conducted by the project’s Qualified Environmental Professional to ensure that all receiving environments are protected.
  • Delays and increased traffic should be expected along the roads accessing the Peninsula, as well as single lane alternating traffic intermittently.
