Site Preparation Work and Temporary Trail Closure<div class="ExternalClass22D4740E740949D2BA95365033D332F1"><div>​The <a href="/services/parks/ParksPublications/COLTMEPTemporaryTrailClosure2021_MAP.pdf" target="_blank">western perimeter trail</a> at Colony Farm Regional Park will be closed starting early March 2021 to serve as a temporary staging and storage area for the Trans Mountain Expansion Project. To mitigate the impacts on park wildlife and habitats, Trans Mountain crews will start site preparation work on March 1, which will include grass mowing and placement of protective mats. An environmental monitoring professional acting on behalf of Metro Vancouver will be onsite at all times to supervise the work. During the closure, which is expected to last several months, visitors should expect minor traffic delays and construction activity near the junction of Colony Farm Road and Lougheed Highway. Please follow posted safety signs and directions from traffic control personnel. Visitors should plan alternate routes for their park visits.</div><div> <br> </div><div>In November 2020, Metro Vancouver and Trans Mountain reached a Temporary Workspace Agreement, in lieu of Trans Mountain seeking a unilateral ‘Order of Entry’ from the Canadian Energy Regulator. This agreement allows Metro Vancouver to review plans for environmental management, drainage assessment and site reclamation, and includes the requirement for monitoring by an environmental professional acting on Metro Vancouver’s behalf. In addition, Trans Mountain will provide a Community Benefit of up to $1.4 million toward park habitat and trail improvements.</div><div>The 4.45-hectare temporary workspace primarily includes the existing trail and portions of an old field. About 70 per cent of the area has been previously disturbed and will be used to assemble pipe to be pulled under the Fraser River via trenchless construction. No pipe or any other permanent works will be installed in the park.</div><div> <br> </div><div>For questions or concerns about the project, email <a href="mailto:info@transmountain.com">info@transmountain.com</a> or call 1-866-514-6700.
