Elbow River in Roxboro – Outfall restoration

About the projects

Two outfalls located along the south bank of the Elbow River, one at the north end of Roxboro Park and one just west of that on the north side of Roxboro Rd. S.W., suffered damage during the 2013 flood. These projects will repair the damaged outfalls and stabilize the bank in the immediate area of the outfalls using riprap (large stones) to protect them from further erosion. Repairs to both outfalls involves replacing the existing damaged outfall structures, installing new precast outfall ends and stabilizing the riverbank.

Impact to citizens

For the eastern outfall (E30), access to the construction site will be from Roxboro Rd S.W. (see image below). Construction vehicles, equipment and a small lay-down area for supplies will occupy the maintained parks area along the pathway at the north end of Roxboro Park, this area will be fenced off. Equipment will be stored on the maintained parks area.

To safely complete this work our contractor removed four trees in 2015. They will be replaced at a ratio of 2:1 as required by Parks Urban Conservation. We expect limited construction traffic, and there will not be any pathway closures. Work will be performed from 7:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. for approximately two weeks.

For the western outfall (E32), access to the construction site will be through the utility right-of-way from Roxboro Rd S.W. Construction vehicles, equipment and a small lay-down area for supplies will occupy the utility right-of-way south of the outfall. The construction area will be fenced off for safety.

Equipment may be stored on the street in front of the property acquired by the Province, no other impacts to traffic are expected. Work will be performed from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. for approximately one week.

We regret any inconvenience this work may cause, your patience and understanding are appreciated.
