A retaining wall along the recently expanded Sea to Sky highway in West Vancouver is being upgraded.
Government staff have confirmed it’s needed in a section running parallel to Pasco Road, north of the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal.
It was slated to start April 27th, but that’s been delayed because residents have raised concerns about safety and accessing their homes.
They’ve been assured there’s no risk of the wall collapsing.
They’ve also been promised the work won’t start before they’ve been consulted.
No word yet on whether taxpayers are on the hook for the repairs or if it’s still under warranty by the private contractor Peter Kiewit and Sons.
The Highway 99 expansion was one of the major projects needed to ensure Vancouver could be awarded the 2010 Olympics.
