Bridges, Stairs and Boardwalk replacements

About this project

As a part of an annual rehabilitation program, the Parks and Open Space Department has had inspections of all bridge and stair structures conducted to determine any required works.   

The structures included in this current project were identified as requiring replacement, mostly because they did not meet current Town standards or were at the end of their design life.   

Along with structural replacements, sections of trails and landscaping may be updated or upgraded simultaneously. 

The sites and their respective works include:

Petro-Canada Park

The existing wooden boardwalk will be replaced with a new one. A retaining wall will be added to address an erosion issue as well as landscape treatment at the adjacent hill.
