Wharf Repairs and Shoreline Protection, Pointe Sapin Harbour, N.B.

The Small Craft Harbours Branch of Fisheries and Oceans Canada proposes to undertake a wharf reconstruction and shoreline protection project at Pointe Sapin Harbour, located in Pointe Sapin, New Brunswick.

The reconstruction will involve the dismantling and rebuilding of two cribwork wharf structures located at the end of the northeastern wharf at the harbour entrance. New armourstone shoreline protection will be placed adjacent to the seaward side of northeastern wharf. A temporary access road may be constructed to facilitate the wharf reconstruction.  Project works will require of the use of heavy equipment such as excavators and haul trucks.
