Prior to work beginning, the area around Mary Fix Creek needed to be secured. Fencing was placed around the creek for the safety of both pedestrians as well as the crew.
Workers install sandbags to divert water
Early Spring
Crews divert the creek to one side of the canal using sandbags so that flood wall construction can begin on the opposite side with minimal impact to the flow of water.
A temporary bridge is installed.
Late Spring
A temporary pedestrian bridge is installed at the GO station to prepare for the construction of new flood walls and demolition of existing bridges.

Early Summer
As new flood walls are constructed, the existing parking lot bridges over the creek will be demolished and rebuilt.
Crews prepare to pour new flood walls
Late Summer
Demolition of the existing flood walls and excavation continues to prepare for the construction of formwork to pour the new flood walls.
Work begins on the north floodwall
Late Summer
With the construction of the south floodwall complete, crews work on constructing the north floodwall.
Crews work to backfill the site
Early Fall
With the north floodwall complete, crews begin backfilling and compacting the area behind it.
