The proposed project 

Fraser River Pile & Dredge (GP) Inc. (FRPD) proposes to repair one batter pile and install five (5) 864-millimetre (34-inch) diameter steel pipe piles at its New Westminster works yard located at the foot of 20 Street and River Road. The steel piles will be installed along the line of existing dolphins downstream at FRPD's pile-supported dock to provide better protection to the dock and to prevent equipment (i.e., barges and derricks) damage. The piles will be installed using a vibratory hammer, and an impact hammer, if required. Works will be completed with a marine spud derrick or land-based crawler crane. The work is expected to be completed within one week and is planned to be conducted in the spring or summer of 2023.
