(2007-2008) Highway 7a Culvert Rehabilitation

(2007-2008) Highway 7a Culvert Rehabilitation

The rehabilitation/reconstruction of the Highway 7A culvert required a provincial highways class environmental assessment (Group C) to be completed. Environmental aspects assessed by EcoTec for this project included fisheries and aquatic habitats, vegetation, resident wildlife, surface drainage, and socio-economic factors. Impacts to the biophysical and socio-economic environment by the undertaking, and mitigation measures to decrease the impacts, were determined. Fisheries habitat enhancements including fish habitat construction drawings, specifications and letter to the DFO for a No HADD was also completed as part of this project. A Public Information Centre was facilitated by EcoTec for this sensitive project.

Following design completion, construction inspection was carried out in order monitor the construction of the fish habitat features.
