Construction Notice – Neptune Terminals Extension to Low Level Rd. Overpass

Neptune Terminals has received a permit from the Vancouver Fraser Port Authority for an extension to the existing Low Level Road overpass to create an eastern overpass and ramp leading directly into Neptune. This section of road will be private, on Neptune leased land and not intended for public traffic. It will be used for heavy industrial transportation vehicles and to enhance safety by enabling easier access for emergency vehicles.

Construction of the overpass extension will take place between February 19, 2018 and January 31, 2019. Neptune and its contractors do not anticipate any impacts on the local community as a result of construction. All work will be done between the hours of 6 am and 6 pm, Monday to Friday, with only quiet activities occurring between 6 am and 7 am. Should extended work hours be required for any phase of construction, an update will be provided on our website and by email to list subscribers.

  • Noise will be continuously monitored, and we are committed managing construction within noise levels allowed by City of North Vancouver bylaws.
  • Lighting will be limited to temporary construction lighting, directed away from residential areas.
  • No tower cranes will be required during construction; we will be using some mobile cranes which are not anticipated to have any visual impact on the community.
  • Local traffic is not anticipated to increase during construction or once the overpass extension is completed and in operation. Contractors will be using busses or vanpools to travel to the site. There may be occasional deliveries of oversized truck loads, but these will be restricted to off-peak traffic hours.
  • Pile driving will be required between April 24 and September 1, 2018 to construct the foundation of the overpass. Noise associated with this activity will be mitigated by maximizing the use of a vibratory hammer as opposed to an impact hammer, and will comply with permitted municipal noise levels.
