Crews started work yesterday reinforcing the pilot dock. They will be driving sheet piles from a sectional scow using a Mantis crane. A small backhoe is working ahead of the sheet pile work, moving debris away from the face of the old timber piles.
Due to its prominent location between the tug dock and Sackville landing, there should be lots of sidewalk superintendents at noon hour. A portion of the waterfront boardwalk is closed, but foot traffic is only slightly re-routed through the Summit Place arch.
The scow is made up of Flexifloat truckable sections, locked together with add on spud mountings. Le Grow's Marine moved the scow in place yesterday with their tug Carly J and had their tug Harbour Diver on hand today (see Tugfax.)
