A mandatory pre-tender site visit at Radley park took place last week, April 7th, for the Radley Park campgrounds expansion project.
This site visit allowed contractors planning to bid on the project, to see the site in person and gain familiarity with the grounds before submitting their bids.
Funded by the District of Kitimat, the Radley Park expansion project will also be supported by the B.C. Rural Dividend program, which is a grant that supports small rural communities across B.C.
Construction can begin as early as April 26th, the same day the District of Kitimat awards a bidder with the expansion project.
With the campgrounds currently closed, the District of Kitimat hopes the awarded contractors will have construction close to complete by May 21st.
“We don’t expect it to be done then but the majority of the project should be finished around May long weekend,” said Alex Ramos-Espinoza, District of Kitimat’s Director of Engineering Services to contractors at the pre-tender site visit.
The following works to be constructed at the Radley Park campground expansion project includes:
13 new campsites; 13 RV pedestals; two area lights; campground furniture (number posts, fire rings, picnic tables, table shelters, garbage bins, wood shelters, pit toilets, and hose bibs); two service kiosk (one with BC Hydro connection); wiring for kiosks/pedestals/luminaires; excavating 2100 m³ of material for road sub-grade prep; constructing 1700 m³ of new road and camp gravels; clearing and grubbing 4806 m² of forest; trenching/backfilling as needed.
