Construction of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project in the North Thompson region includes approximately 275 km of pipeline and four pump stations. Construction is expected to take place between September 2017 and November 2019.  The majority of the construction will follow conventional pipeline construction techniques, with trenchless techniques being used for the North Thompson River, Blue River, Raft River, Clearwater River and Mann Creek crossings.  In these locations, a horizontal directional drill will be used to minimize impacts and disruption to these areas. The Blue River HDD will also go under the Mike Wiegele ski resort. The North Thompson region will host three worker camps.
