Construction Timelines - Updated June 3, 2020
At this time we are still moving ahead with capital projects, this project is a key piece of infrastructure for the safety of the community. The contract to construct the Debris Flood Retention Structure has been awarded to Flatiron Constructors Canada Limited. The contract was awarded at a value of $32.8 million. They bring essential experience in building large infrastructure projects in challenging locations.
We expect construction to start in early July
Construction will be completed in 2022, with final landscaping complete in 2024
Trails in the area will be impacted in the following way:
Cougar Creek Canyon will be closed during construction
The two multi-use pathways on either side of the creek will remain open - short closures may be necessary
Montane trail and the Horseshoe trail systems will remain open - short closures may be necessary
The Lady MacDonald Trail will remain open - short closures may be necessary
Really big, very hard to miss. Looks like a pyramid with a nice white roof guarding the top. Not many climbs make it to the true top of the wall as the wall is more than 45 meters high at points!
Good number of moderate routes from 5.8 to 5.11b, with most routes falling in the high 10s to low 11s.
Walk into the canyon as per every other cliff and this part of the first cliffs but after the smaller "school of rock" area. Beware, the water gets higher and higher during the melt season!
