Digging the Amphitheatre

Digging the Amphitheatre

The first real shovelling session happened earlier this week at the Hippodrome grounds, the future Quebec Amphitheatre site.

Three mechanical shovels, one painted blue by the excavation firm Charles-Auguste Fortier, started digging in the early morning.

The dump trucks have started the removal process from the site, taking the materials to where dry items are stored.

The excavation firm owner’s brother, Florent Fortier, played for the Nordiques in the mid-70’s. 

The honour of digging the first hole at the site went to M. Fortier.

The company will be installing the pillars and constructing the cement base.
This process will be ongoing until around spring 2013.

Keep the faith. The Nordiques are coming back!
