Major Roadwork & Construction Projects
  • Front Street Closure

    Effective February 21 at 5am
    Starting February 21st at 5am, Fraser Crossing Partners will implement a one-month full closure of Front Street between Begbie Street and E. Columbia Street. Front Street Mews will remain open. This closure is required for crews to offload steel girders, build temporary support structures, and begin installing girders, which will form the new bridge deck, between Front Street and Columbia Street.
    While this full closure is in effect, drivers will be detoured to Columbia Street. Trucks will continue to use official truck routes (including observing applicable time restrictions). All traffic pattern changes and detours will be well signed, and traffic control personnel will be on site to direct traffic as required.
    Additional closures of both Front Street and Columbia Street will be required to install girders and build the new bridge deck over the roadway. The next closure will be a full closure of Columbia Street for crews to lift girders across this section of roadway. Front and Columbia will not be closed at the same time, and more information will be provided in advance.
    For more information, please visit the Pattullo Bridge Replacement website.

    The project will include sewer separation work and replacing water mains that are at the end of their service life and due for replacement. The water main and sanitary sewer replacement program is intended to renew our aging infrastructure and to improve quality and capacity where required.

  • 660 Quayside (Bosa Development)

    Traffic impacts for approximately 10 weeks starting February 21

    Starting February 21, 2024, there will be some changes to the traffic flow on Begbie Street and Quayside Drive.

    For approximately ten weeks, Begbie Street will be southbound-only (towards the water) between Columbia Street and Front Street. Flaggers will assist vehicles exiting Front Street Mews. This work is to construct a new pedestrian and bicycle railway crossing on the east side of Begbie Street.
    A new road configuration will also be opening for Quayside Drive.  The new road will extend Begbie Street south to the waterfront and curve around the Fraser River Discovery Centre before coming back up to join Quayside Drive near the River Market.
    Thank you as always for your patience and understanding while we complete this work.  Please do not hesitate to contact Bosa Development if you have any questions at  .
