As part of the District’s 2021 Utilities Capital Program, the watermain along Taylor Way, between Main Street (located in Park Royal South) and Keith Road, has been replaced. This watermain upgrade allows the District to continue to provide water services to all of our residents.
In order to restore the road following the recent watermain upgrade, the District will be paving on Taylor Way, between Marine Drive and Keith Road.
Overnight asphalt milling and paving work is scheduled to begin Sunday, September 26 and take two to three nights to complete. The construction timeline is subject to change due to weather and contractor availability. All work will take place between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m.
What are the impacts?
Traffic - The District plans to keep Taylor Way open to two-way traffic during construction, however, please expect delays while travelling through this area and plan for extra travel time. Construction signage and traffic control staff will be on site during construction to assist with traffic flow. Pedestrian traffic will not be impacted.
Hours of work
District bylaws concerning permitted hours of construction are not applicable on Taylor Way as it lies under the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure jurisdiction. A portion of this project must be completed outside of regular construction hours and overnight, as Taylor Way is considered an arterial highway and Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure regulations require night work to minimize impacts on heavy vehicle traffic during regular working hours.
