Steveston Island Dike Investigation
The City will be performing geotechnical drilling at a number of locations in the Steveston Harbour area. Work will be occurring on Steveston (Shady) Island, offshore near Steveston Island in Steveston Harbour, adjacent to the parking lot at 6240 Dyke Road, and at the south east edge of Gary Point Park, between January 15 and 29 of 2018. The geotechnical drilling is part of a geotechnical investigation being completed in support of Phase 1 of the City’s Lulu Island Dike Master Plan. Phase 1 identified constructing a dike along Steveston Island as the preferred option for future flood protection to residents and businesses near Steveston Harbour.
Scope of Work
- Drilling 14 test holes along the proposed dike alignment
- Clearing of vegetation on Steveston Island as required for drilling work
- See Geotechnical Drilling Map
Work will be starting on January 15, 2017. Hours of work will be
- January 15 to 18: 24 hours
- January 18 to 29: 6 am to 6pm
With the exception of work adjacent to the parking lot at 6240 Dyke Road and at the south east edge of Gary Point Park, work will be completed greater than 150 metres away from businesses and residences. Adjacent to the parking lot at 6240 Dyke Road and at the south east edge of Gary Point Park, the work areas will be delineated by cones, and passers-by will be directed to keep a safe distance. Traffic control will not be required to complete the work; therefore, there will be no disruption to typical traffic patterns.
