Rathburn Crossing Replacement- 5th Canadian Division Support Base, Gagetown

The Department of National Defence (DND) has proposed a project to replace the Rathburn Watercourse Crossing. Due to military activities upstream and high-water events, severe erosion and structural damage around the inlet and outlet of these areas has occurred. This watercourse crossing requires a structure designed to meet military loading and fish passage requirements. The site also requires the design of a 400 meter road realignment to straighten out Corner Road. The two steel arch culverts will be replaced with one large open bottom culvert.

Latest update

March 26, 2024 – The public comment period on the project is closed. The Department of National Defence is considering comments received to help inform its determination on whether the carrying out of the project is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects.
