Evergreen crews to pull an all-nighter to move sewer line

Evergreen Line crews will be moving a sewer line located under the CP Rail tracks starting tonight.

The work is centred on Clarke Street, near the foot of Queens Street, and will run from 6 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Saturday.

The noisier work, including excavation and hydraulic hammering, will take place from 6:30 to 10 p.m. and from 3 to 7 a.m., with noise levels reduced between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m.

Three crews will be working to complete the project in one night. Temporary parking restrictions will be set up on Clarke Street between Kyle and Queens streets.

Relocating the sewer is part of the early works construction to prepare for shifting about 400 m of railway tracks to the north in order to accommodate the ground-level Evergreen guideway. Moving the railway requires shifting utilities, re-aligning Columbia Street and building a gravel base for the new tracks.
