The proposed project 

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) proposes to carry out physical activities related to bridge construction works continuously (24 hours, 7 days a week) for the construction period from October 2020 to December 2023. These works require an amendment to condition 45 of the approved Pattullo Bridge Replacement project permit (PER No. 17-107).The rationale for the extended work hours request is to maintain the construction schedule and align with nighttime works approved under their provincial Environmental Assessment (EA) Certificate (#T19-01).   

Project components associated with this request include general construction activities; works to support installation of in-river piles, for example splicing or welding pile sections together; use of cranes to lift pre-cast concrete panels into place during cantilevered bridge deck construction; shipping of materials to and from the construction site, temporary lighting to illuminate night-time work areas; equipment mobilization and demobilization; concrete pouring. No pile driving will be conducted outside of regular construction hours.
