Nine Mile Creek Wharf 403/404 Re-construction

Structures 403 and 404 at Nine Mile Creek Harbour make up an L-shaped wharf. Wharf structure 404 is a steel sheet pile structure with an asphalt deck. Wharf structure 403 is a timber pile structure with a timber sheathing face and asphalt deck. Both structures have deteriorated significantly and are now in need of replacement in order to prolong the life and maintain the safety of the facility. DFO-SCH is proposing to partially remove both structures and replace them with a new steel H-pile and concrete panel (Berlin Wall) structure.
