Emergency Bank Protection

Client:
City of Abbotsford
Location:
Abbotsford, BC

 
JJM Construction Ltd. completed emergency bank protection works on the Erosion Arc F section of the Fraser River, west of Page Road in Abbotsford, BC. The purpose of these works was to prevent ongoing slope instability along the bank as a result of erosion and over-steepening. Activities for the work consisted of the supply, delivery and installation of rock along the exposed bank. Approximate quantities of the rock included 11,300 tonnes of Type 1 Rock, 10,700 tonnes of Type 2 Rock and 2,600 tonnes of Type 3 Rock. 

The project site was documented as being a highly productive and diverse habitat for a range of animal species, particularly schooling fish such as Salmonid fry. As such, work had to be done in a careful and minimally disruptive manner. Continuous environmental monitoring was in place, and the work was completed without incident. Due to the emergency nature of this project, JJM had a short period of time to secure the required materials, which was likewise accomplished without incident.
