Replacement of fixed aids to navigation towers at the Contrecoeur Marine Terminal

Canadian Coast Guard is planning to replace the two fixed aids to navigation towers located at the Contrecoeur Marine Terminal. The site is managed by the Montreal Port Authority. The project promoter is the Canadian Coast Guard (CCG). The project is under the management of the CCG's Marine and Civil Infrastructures division.

The two towers consist of the rear light (RL) and the front light (FL). Their reference numbers from the light list are 2313 and 2312 respectively. The current RL is 70 feet high and the current FL is 36.55 feet high. 

The scope of the construction work includes dismantling the existing structures, including the foundations, installing two temporary aids to navigation structures during construction to maintain the level of service for marine traffic, building new foundations and installing new steel cladding towers. The new structures will be square-shaped, with galvanized steel frames. The future RL will be 75 feet high and 5 x 5 feet wide. The FL will be 40 feet high and 4 x 4 feet wide. Both new towers will be anchored on concrete foundations.
