Please be advised the Metro Vancouver will be undertaking sewer upgrades at the intersection of Columbia Street and Front Street starting April 16th until October 2018.
This work will involve the construction of three large sewer pipes and two underground chambers. As a result, a small section of Front Street will be closed to all traffic (please see map below), with a short detour on Begbie Street. Local traffic will still be permitted to use Front Street west of Begbie Street. In addition, all truck traffic will be re-routed from Front Street to Royal Avenue.
Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are asked to pay close attention to all construction signage and to follow the direction of traffic control personnel.
The work is scheduled to take place at an accelerated rate with a fixed deadline in order to reduce the construction time and minimize impacts to the community, commuter and truck traffic.
