Construction Updates

Improvements to Lions Gate Bridge North Approach
Project Update for September 17

Joint replacement work will begin this week and will require nighttime lane closures. Crews are working to minimize noise for surrounding residents as much as possible. However, because work will require pavement cutting and use of jack hammers, some intermittent loud noise may occur. 

Background: The provincial Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is undertaking Improvements to the Lions Gate Bridge North Approach Viaduct beginning in July 2014. Deck joints and bearings on the North Approach Viaduct – the elevated roadway  connecting Marine Drive to the suspension bridge – are reaching the end of their useful life. 

Contact: Please email Alexandra Graham with questions. More information is on the provincial government's project web site here.

Clyde Avenue/Keith Road traffic calming
Phase 1 of traffic calming work on Clyde and Keith began the week of August 11. Work will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Staff will be on site to direct traffic. Every effort will be made to minimize disruption. The 1100 block of Keith Road will be converted to one-way eastbound traffic only. All vehicles parallel-parked on the north side of the street will be required to park facing east, in the direction of traffic. For information, please email John Calimente or call 604-921-2912. Some residents of the 1200 block of Clyde Avenue will be unable to park on-street due to construction of a concrete curb bulge designed to slow down traffic on that avenue. 

3500 to 3700 block Sunset Lane reconstruction
Work beganThursday, August 14 and should take approximately eight weeks. A full lane closure will be in effect 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please email Fraser Kettner or call him at 604-925-7028 if you have questions.
