Washed Out Culvert and Roadway Repair at Heals Rifle Range - Canadian Forces Base (CFB) Esquimalt

The Department of National Defence (DND) is proposing a project. An existing road/culvert over Durrance Creek, approximately 900 meters northwest of the Rifle Range, has washed out and needs to be repaired/replaced in order to provide safe sentry and fire prevention access. The failed culvert will be removed and replaced with a larger diameter culvert, with culvert design details including size and materials to be confirmed following completion of a Fish Habitat Assessment. Following culvert installation, the existing road over the culvert will be repaired to restore sentry and fire prevention access.

Latest update

January 16, 2024— The Department of National Defence issued its Notice of Determination and determined that the project is not likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
