Drag Lake dams to be rehabilitated

Work will soon commence on the Drag Lake dams to rehabilitate the structures.
According to an email from Parks Canada the construction contract was awarded to MTM-2 Contracting Inc.
“The rehabilitation of the Drag Lake dams will entail major concrete repairs to both dams – chipping away damaged concrete and then resurfacing the structures. A raised catwalk will be added to the site linking the two dams and reducing the number of stairs at the site. New guard rails will be added to enhance visitor and operator safety and post tension anchors will be installed to affix the dam to bedrock for additional strength” the email reads.

The start date for construction will be announced soon Parks Canada says. During construction access across the dam will be restricted. It will be re-opened once the project is completed.
