Matthews West will start hauling material for future infrastructure projects taking place on the Oceanfront peninsula.
Hauling is expected to start Monday June 14 and run through mid-October this year.
This hauling project affects access to the Oceanfront beach and trails. The map above outlines the controlled and restricted areas during construction.
Main Road construction is also underway and it is expected to last until the end of June this year.
Oceanfront Squamish has installed a new yellow gate restricting vehicle access with an adjacent parking area for those wanting to access the Cattermole and Mamquam Blind Channel walking trails.
Enhanced safety precautions will be taken through increased signage and onsite security personnel.
“As members of the community, we understand the importance of access to these trails. As such, we strive to maintain as much access to the trails and water as is safely possible. However, as construction activity on site increases there will be areas that will remain closed to the public until such work has been completed and it is deemed safe to re-open,” the company said.
Visitors are being asked to enjoy trails only in certain areas, as shown in the map above as ‘Areas Open to Public.’
Oceanfront Squamish says visitors should remain acutely aware of their surroundings while on site, as they would be entering an active construction site and will be utilizing the trails at their own risk.
“Please keep a look out for new signage throughout the site. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to visit the enhanced trails in the near future.”
