Major Roadwork & Construction Projects
  • Front Street Road Closure

    Front Street will be closed from Sept. 21 to Sept 28 between Columbia St. and East Columbia St.

    As part of the City's Sewer Rehabilitation Program, Front Street will be closed between Columbia Street and East Columbia Street, starting Thursday, September 21, 2023. The work is expected to be completed by the end of September, weather dependent. 

    September 21 to September 28, 2023

    Hours of Work
    24 hours a day for the duration of the project

    Road Closures
    Full 24 hour closure of Front Street from Columbia Street to East Columbia Street. Alternate access points will be provided and advance notice will be given. Expect increased truck traffic on nearby roads. 

    Temporary property access will be restricted, and parking will be impacted. Please obey 'no parking' signs as they will be moved daily. Sidewalk access may also be temporarily restricted. Occupants of nearby buildings may notice a slight chemical smell coming from their drains. The use of heavy machinery, back up beepers, generators, pumps, jackhammers, concrete saws and lighting, including vacuum truck deployment is expected.

    We will endeavor to minimize disruption as much as possible. However, as with a project of this nature, some disruption is inevitable. If special consideration is required, please contact Amir Aminpour, Project Manager, at 604-515-3796 or


    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.
