Marina construction keeps breakwater off limits

Cold Lake, AB – There will be no public access to the breakwater at the Cold Lake Marina while crucial repairs to the access are being undertaken.
Workers have been demolishing the old slab connection, and filling the area with gravel and compacting it. Currently, rebar is being installed, and forms will be created and poured this week, weather permitting.
At this time, there is no access permitted to the breakwater. Once the concrete has been poured, it will take about a week or two to allow the concrete to dry enough to provide safe access to the breakwater. The plan is to have the area ready for vehicular traffic and sailboat removal by the beginning of October, though foot traffic should be permitted before then.
“We know that the marina is a popular spot for everyone to enjoy and we are sorry for an inconvenience, but this is an important repair that will extend the life and functionality of the Cold Lake Marina,” said Mayor Craig Copeland.
