What are the benefits to the community?
A Seawalk of 1.3 km was constructed to stabilize the bank along Highway 101 and create a pedestrian corridor along the waterfront, beginning at the barge terminal and running south to the bottom of Oliver Street. With the expansion of the South Harbour, the intention is to extend the Seawalk from the former barge terminal to the Wharf at Westview to create a continuous, accessible waterfront walkway.
How much will the project cost and how is it being funded?
The initial Seawalk construction project along Highway 101 was a partnership between Ministry of Transportation, the City of Powell River and Sliammon First Nation. Funding for the completed north entrance realignment came from Towns for Tomorrow.
