A huge crane has been brought to Mission Harbour to help install a new breakwater dock.

New breakwater dock installed at Mission harbour

Thanks to a federal initiative to make improvements to small craft harbours, Mission is getting its breakwater dock replaced.

Mission harbour is getting a much needed upgrade. Thanks to a federal initiative to make improvements to small craft harbours, Mission is getting its breakwater dock replaced.

“The original dock was installed over 40 years ago and it had a basic life expectancy of about 25 years, so it served very well,” said Alec Finnsson, president and chair of the Mission Harbour Authority.

Finnsson explained that the old concrete dock has been removed and the new one is currently being installed.

Passersby will likely have noticed the giant crane in the harbour, needed to perform the work.

According to Finnsson, the job should be completed by the end of the weekend, despite some minor setbacks.

“They had a real hard time getting it (the new dock) up here because of the amount of flow in the river from the freshet. So it took a little longer.”

He said you don’t get many chances to see marine construction like this.
