TRCA Lower Don River West Remedial
Flood Protection Project, Component 1, Toronto, Ontario
was recently awarded a project by the Toronto and Region
Conservation Authority for the design and construction
administration of flood protection for 210 hectares
of land west of the Lower Don River. Key firms supporting
TSH include Earth Tech, Gartner Lee and Thurber Engineering.
Flood protection elements include the
westward extension of the CN Rail bridge over the Don
River, channelization of the Don River through the new
bridge span and approximately 150 m of retaining walls.
CN Rail and GO Transit rail traffic must be maintained
continuously throughout the construction period. A pedestrian
walkway in the new west abutment and a new pedestrian
underpass are also included.
The project has an aggressive schedule,
requiring the design to be completed within three months
and construction completed in eight months.
