Work will be planned gradually in order to maintain the site operations at all times throughout the duration of the project.

  • Removal of select trees;
  • Excavation and leveling work, as well as the digging of a tunnel;
  • Potential management of contaminated soils;
  • Demolition of buildings, parking lots, and other infrastructure;
