Foreshore work is set to begin at the Carbon Engineering Innovation Centre on the Cattermole Slough in early December.
The centre is the first building at Oceanfront Squamish and is located on the west side of the property.
Heavy machinery will be working in this area and construction is anticipated to take through the new year and into the spring.
“Public safety is a priority, and we ask everyone to respect the trail closure along the Cattermole Slough through this time,” says Oceanfront Squamish.
Oceanfront Squamish says the construction would provide erosion protection, habitat enhancement and native marsh planting species and public trail access.
This will be the first section of the oceanfront perimeter trail and will connect to the existing District trail network.
The design has been approved by the District and has all the necessary provincial and federal permits in place, Oceanfront Squamish adds.
In-water works are also being scheduled daily, and it is critical to keep a wide berth when navigating waters near the southern end of the oceanfront peninsula to avoid running aground, the company cautions.
Orange buoys have been placed delineating the area that should be avoided when coming in and out of the Mamquam Blind Channel.
“For your safety, please respect all construction signage. We ask all marine traffic (including paddle boards, canoes, power boats and sail boats) to steer clear of this area,” says Oceanfront Squamish.
