Here are some photos of sand being dredged from the Fraser River for the pre-loading of the route of the South Fraser Perimeter Freeway:
Three large sand stockpiles were dredged – on 80th Street near the Delta Animal Shelter, on River Road near Nordel Way and in Surrey near Tannery Road.
As well, they are digging up more farmland in the Fraser Valley to supply sand and gravel for Gateway road construction:
See the STOP GATEWAY post on Farmland in Chilliwack being destroyed for gravel extraction.
