Beverage Antenna Boardwalk - Canadian Forces Station (CFS) Leitrim

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project which involves the clearing of some brush and fallen logs, and the installation of a surface laid boardwalk, which are needed to ensure Detachment members can access nearby antenna safely to perform maintenance and inspections. The Beverage Antenna covers a distance of approximately 1 km through muskeg and brush and is located at the end of gravel roads approximately 1.2 km south of the main detachment facility. The terrain through which the antenna is constructed is uneven and often very wet and muddy. Proposed activities include: Clearing/trimming brush for a narrow path parallel to the Beverage Antenna; construction of a timber boardwalk; and placing the timber boardwalk along the cleared path parallel to the Beverage Antenna.
