Boathouse retaining wall rehabilitation

116 Gordon Street

The City is working to rehabilitate the existing retaining wall along the north edge of the Speed River in front of the Boathouse Tea Room. Work includes the construction of a concrete coping wall, addition of pedestrian railings and removal of some vegetation.

The area will be inaccessible from Fall 2024 to May 2025. Gordon Street may have short-term lane reductions as equipment may have to enter the roadway to reach all work areas.

Construction timeline

Construction is expected to begin in Fall 2024 and be completed by the end of May 2025.
