Limited site access through a rear lane way added logistical challenges. Excavated material had to be removed and transported by bobcat to waiting trucks on the nearest side street. Lane way clean up required hours of labour sweeping and power washing. Water trucks were brought in to wash down the streets. More than 250 cubic meters of earth were removed over several days.
