Minor Remediation Work at The Yards
Residents travelling down Dewdney Avenue this week may see some minor work on the former CP railyard site now known as The Yards project. As a result, there may be some traffic delays.
The City has begun milling some of the existing pavement structure, which will then be recycled into roadways at the landfill. This is part of the initial remediation work for the site and is an environmentally-conscious approach that repurposes material that would otherwise be waste.
The work is expected to be complete this week, with further remediation taking place later this summer and fall.
Repurposing the asphalt is consistent with City Council’s commitment to lead and build a sustainable neighbourhood.
