The City’s Sanitary Master Plan prepared by AECOM Canada Ltd. identified the sanitary sewer main crossing on 240 Street under the Kanaka Creek Bridge through two siphons as requiring upgrades. The upgrades were planned in stages: Phase 1 was the installation of new siphon manhole connection and modifications to existing siphons that were completed in 2019 and Phase 2 is the installation of two new inverted siphons suspended under the Kanaka Creek Bridge. The existing siphons under Kanaka Creek will be maintained as back-ups to the new inverted siphons.
The Phase 2 work generally consists of the installation of two new inverted siphons suspended under the Kanaka Creek Bridge deck, complete with pigging or cleaning ports, connection to valves on the siphon inlet chamber, a new manhole, tie-in to the existing manhole, roadway rehabilitation and environmental remediation works. The construction has to be done during the 2020 Fisheries Window, August 1st to September 15th, 2020.
240 Street is expected to remain open to traffic throughout construction as most of the work is on the east side of Kanaka Creek Bridge.
