City officials re-opened sections of a waterfront walkway in Steveston Monday, 10 days after cracks were found in the pavement along the dike.

Onni Development "substantially completed" interim stabilization work on the dike, and all sections were open by 5 p.m., said city spokesperson Ted Townsend.

On Dec. 9, city hall required Onni to stop work along and near the dike, where a section of concrete foundation is taking shape.

Onni is building six mixed-use buildings overtop underground parkades between Bayview Street and the South Arm of the Fraser River.

Work on the buildings—which will range from one to three storeys—is scheduled to be finished by the summer of 2013, according to a sign at the construction site.
