- Tuesday, February 25 and Wednesday, February 26 - due to Hydro Vac of footings
- Monday, March 2 - Installation of cages and concrete pour
- Saturday. March 14 and Sunday, March 15 - Erect posts and sails.
Katherine Town Council and the YMCA have been working closely to ensure as minimal impact as possible to all users.
