Cascadia Rail Expansion Phase 4

Proposed amendment 

Canadian Pacific Kansas City (CPKC) is preparing to construct habitat offsetting as part of the approved Cascadia Rail Expansion Phase 4 project (PER No. 20-095). CPKC is requesting an amendment to install up to ten open ended steel piles between 24 inches and 36 inches in diameter, along the northern extent of the Berry Point offsetting area. The piles will be used to affix a silt curtain for turbidity mitigation during construction and provide mooring points for material scows, the marine derrick, and other vessels. The piles will be removed after approximately four months. The pile installation and removal will be completed within the least risk window for fish in the Burrard Inlet and with vibratory hammer to the extent possible.
