Public access restrictions at Lakeview Park pier

The Hamilton Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA Ports) is advising community members of a HOPA project at the Oshawa Harbour that will result in some access restrictions to the pier at Lakeview Park.

Dredging has started in the Oshawa Harbour; while this is ongoing, some access restrictions to the pier will be required. Barriers will be installed periodically during dredging when the contractor/heavy equipment is working in close proximity to the pier. The barrier will be located approximately halfway down the length of the pier, as indicated. Dredging work is expected to continue for a period of approximately 1 month, said a HOPA notice.

Dredging the approach canal ensures port operations run smoothly. Port Authorities in the Great Lakes are required to conduct maintenance dredging to ‘Seaway depth’ of 8.2 m (27 ft.) ensure vessel access to port. The Port of Oshawa experiences a high degree of siltation resulting in the need for regular dredging at the mouth of the harbour and in the approach channel, it explained..
