Service notice - Chemainus Terminal - Notice of Project Work - July to September 2024

Posted:   Tuesday, July 02, 2024

Reposted: July 23, 2024

Chemainus Ferry Terminal
Notice of Project Work
July - September 2024

As part of our ongoing commitment to ensure the safe operation of our terminal facilities, BC Ferries is carrying out construction work at the Chemainus terminal to maintain safe and reliable operation of the berth. Construction will begin July 23 and is anticipated to be completed by the first week of September.

Work will be completed in between sailings from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm, Monday-Friday, and is not expected to impact crossing times. Increased levels of noise are expected during some activities and BC Ferries will work closely with the contractor to minimize noise for our neighbours.

Night work may be required during the week of July 29 to complete repair work on the timber trestle and avoid interference with terminal operations. We will keep neighbours informed of the exact timing and anticipated impacts of all night work beforehand.

There will be a reduction to the terminal parking for the duration of the work to facilitate storage of construction materials and equipment. Drivers and customers are asked to follow the direction of staff and signage, and are encouraged to arrive at the terminal early for their desired sailing.

BC Ferries would like to thank its customers and neighbours for their patience and understanding as we complete this necessary work.
