Wharf Upgrades and Launching Ramp Reconstruction at the Covehead Small Craft Harbour, Prince Edward Island

Post-tropical storm Fiona damaged the wharf infrastructure at the Covehead Fisheries and Oceans Canada - Small Craft Harbour. The proposed project will include the reconstruction of existing wharf and launching ramp structures. Wharf structure #603 will be removed and reconstructed with steel sheet pile and armour stone shore protection; wharf structure #403 will be removed and replaced with steel sheet pile; and wharf structure #405 will be removed and reconstructed with a new cope wall.  All components of the work will raise the elevation of the deck by approximately 1 metre.  Launching ramp structure #501 will be reconstructed with a new slab-on-grade ramp.
