Work to remove the former Odin Seafood dock in Cow Bay will begin this weekend, a project that will last until the middle of December.

The Prince Rupert Port Authority announced today that it had awarded the contract to demolish and dispose of the condemned wharf structure, located between Atlin Terminal and the Northland Cruise Dock, to the Coast Tsimshian Northern Contractors Alliance, which is scheduled to begin the work on Saturday.

Michael Gurney, manager of corporate communications for the Prince Rupert Port Authority, said the completed work will be another step toward realizing a new vision for the Cow Bay area.

“It is one of many steps being taken in the renewal of Cow Bay. The port authority continues to guide its work based on feedback received by residents during previous public meetings,” he said.

“That vision is still very much alive and this is a key part of that work.”

Anyone who has questions or concerns about the work being done is encouraged to contact the Prince Rupert Port Authority’s public comment line at 250-627-5621.
