Conceptual design for Wolf Bay Bridge

Barge-mounted drill rigs are scheduled to be deployed from Barber Marina during the week of Feb. 25, 2019 in order to begin drilling for geotechnical assessment in the locations of the proposed Wolf Bay Bridge support piles.

Drilling was scheduled to commence on the north side of the Bay on Wednesday, Feb. 27 and will be operational 24 hours a day on weekdays only. Drilling is anticipated to continue for approximately one month. As the drill rigs move to the southern shore of Wolf Bay, noise impacts will be assessed and the activity limited to daylight hours, if necessary.
