Notice of Blasting Operations for New Bridge Terminal Project

(October 17, 2011) – As part of the construction excavation activity
for the new Metro Transit Bridge Terminal on Nantucket Avenue in
Dartmouth, the contractor, Consbec Inc., has obtained a permit to carry
out the blasting operations. This will begin on or about October 18, and
continue for four to six weeks.

All requirements outlined in Blasting By-law B-600 have been met in
order to have a permit issued for this project. Pre-blast inspections on
structures within a pre-blast radius, as outlined in the by-law, have
been carried out, and residents and business and property owners within
a 300-metre radius of the construction site have been given notification
of the operations.  Seismographs will be set up on structures in the
area to monitor vibration and sound levels to ensure they do not exceed
allowable limits.

Operations can take place Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. No
blasting will take place on weekends or statutory holidays.
