There’s no BCLR shop, would they do a mobile repair, with the Hi-Rail?

Got a few updates on the Island Rd/Enviormental Dr line.

A few months ago a developer submitted plans to use almost 55 acres of woods in proximity to the line for a major residential development that would border the railroad beds.

Initial application - ... sp=sharing

Updated plans (Dec 2019) - ... 58DhAcVpQI

Traffic Study - ... sfU21Zliq4


Photos from today of the line and the starting of the new development


Also, today there was major demolition on the remaining GAF building, this building will likely be gone before next week.
