Construction to start on Departure Bay beachfront upgrades

NANAIMO – Upgrades to Departure Bay beachfront to start in November and continue through winter.

The seawall walkway and parking along the walkway will soon be closed for construction to carry out Departure Bay beachfront upgrades.

The work will begin in November and continue throughout the winter.

Parking along Loat Street will be restricted at times during construction, but alternative parking will be available at the Departure Bay Activity Centre on Wingrove Street.

The Kin Hut and playground will remain open, but to ensure public safety, Kin Hut, playground and beach access will be restricted and could change with construction activities.

The city has contracted Knappett Industries to carry out the work.

Due to the area’s cultural and heritage significance, archaeological consultants Millennia Research Ltd. and the Snuneymuxw First Nation will monitor construction work.

For more details, please please visit the project website at www.nanaimo.ca/goto/DBSeawall.

Updated information will also be posted at the project site and at the Kin Hut as it becomes available.
