Dear Valued Stakeholder,
We are writing to update you about the current status of construction occurring in the Brackley to Dalvay area of Prince Edward Island National Park, as these projects will be on-going throughout the summer 2016 season. During the road reconstruction and repaving projects, every effort will be taken to ensure there is minimal disruption to local residents and business operators as well as visitors, however short-term traffic delays may be experienced.
The renewal and rehabilitation of the Covehead Bridge and Gulf Shore Parkway will have a long term, positive impact on the visitor experience and will have beneficial impacts on the tourism industry on Prince Edward Island.
Covehead Bridge Repairs
The purpose of this project is to rehabilitate the aging Covehead Bridge which connects P.E.I. National Park between Brackley and Dalvay. The bridge is a multi-span concrete structure which spans an active fishing and recreational harbour. Part of the bridge rehabilitation is the addition of a sidewalk on the south side that will provide safer use for pedestrians and cyclists using the Gulf Shore Way multi-use trail.
To facilitate this work, the bridge is closed to all vehicle and pedestrian traffic until April 15th, 2016. Additionally, the Gulf Shore Parkway and Gulf Shore Way multi-use trail are closed between Shaws Beach and the Covehead Bridge during this time. There is a detour in place to reroute vehicle traffic during these closures. From April 15 to mid-July, one lane of traffic will be open with automated lights to control the flow of vehicles crossing the bridge. From mid-July to September, two lanes will be open, as well as the pedestrian sidewalk on the south side of the bridge. Covehead Bridge will close for an additional two weeks in September, 2016 while repaving is taking place.
Materials and equipment for the Covehead Bridge repairs are being kept in the Stanhope Cape parking lot. This area will re-open for visitors in mid-June 2016.
Road Resurfacing Projects – Brackley to Dalvay
Parks Canada will reconstruct and repave the Gulf Shore Parkway between Brackley and Dalvay. As a result, the Gulf Shore Parkway and the Gulf Shore Way multi-use trail are closed between Shaws Beach and the Covehead Bridge until mid-April 2016. There is a detour in place to reroute vehicle traffic during this time. Construction will take place throughout the 2016 season, however one lane will be kept open at all times to allow for traffic flow. The Gulf Shore Way multi-use trail will remain closed while construction is taking place on the adjacent road. Trail closures will change as roadwork progresses. We encourage you to visit our website regularly for the current status. This project will provide substantial upgrades to road surfaces which will have a positive impact on visitor experience.
Brackley Beach Parking Lot
Parks Canada will be repaving the Brackley Beach parking lot in the spring of 2016. The parking lot is now closed to traffic as it is being used for the storage of building materials. The parking lot is expected to re-open June 15th, 2016.
In the fall of 2015, Parks Canada installed a new playground at Stanhope Beach next to the eastern side of the existing kitchen shelter. This exciting installation includes a whale themed climbing structure, and a wheelchair accessible feature. We expect this to be a very popular feature for families visiting the park.
Construction crews are making some improvements to Stanhope Campground:
- Roads have been re-gravelled and crews have cut brush to widen driving lanes and campsites.
- Eight new oTENTiks have been installed at the back of the campground. Staff are continuing landscape work and finishing touches on the new oTENTik sites.
- A kitchen shelter and washroom building dedicated to the new OTENTiks is nearing completion, and will be ready to open in June.
- A new registration kiosk and reconfiguration of the campground entrance is being planned for construction during the spring of 2016 and will be completed by mid-June, in time for the opening of the campground. The new kiosk will offer visitors a trip planning area complete with couches, washroom and equipped with WiFi access, as well as a retail section that will offer the sale of basics such as ice, firewood, milk, bread, bug spray and Parks Canada merchandise. The campground entrance will be reconfigured to provide ample parking for visitors to the kiosk, a pull up lane for campers and trailers, a pass through lane, and a drive up lane where guests can pull up to the kiosk window to register. A new exit lane will also be created.
In the spring of 2016, interpretive panels will be installed along the Robinsons Island Trail System (RITS) highlighting the natural, cultural, and Indigenous heritage of the island. Planting of native tree species will continue in selected areas of Robinsons Island in the spring of 2016.
In the fall of 2015, silviculture activities continued with the goal of restoring the original Acadian Forest in P.E.I. National Park. These activities include seed tree release, thinning, and patch clear cuts. In the future, these areas will be planted with tree species characteristic of the Acadian Forest. This forest type is characterised by a mix of sugar maple, American beech, yellow birch, eastern white pine, and eastern hemlock on well drained sites, and white spruce, balsam fir, red maple and eastern larch on poorly drained sites. Silviculture activities are currently concentrated in the Stanhope to Dalvay sector of the park.
Details on upcoming infrastructure projects and construction schedules will be made available on our website: http://www.pc.gc.ca/eng/pn-np/pe/pei-ipe/visit/infra-prog.aspx. Parks Canada would like to thank islanders for their patience as we complete this work.
