The Proposed Project


The proposed project at Bloodvein River Airport involves the construction of a complete fence system to enclose the runway, taxiway, apron, equipment shop, terminal building, and the airport gravel stockpile. The fence will provide security, as well as limit unauthorized access into the airport from both pedestrians and wildlife. The project will involve clearing a 3 metre-wide area along the proposed alignment, followed by installation of 3100 metres of fixed knot fence, two gates, and signage.


This map is for illustrative purposes. The markers represent the approximate locations based on available data. More than one marker may be identified for a given assessment.
