Please click on the sections below to see if there is road work taking place in your neighbourhood.

  • Beginning July 24th, 2017, the City of New Westminster’s contractor, Hall Constructors, will be repairing some curbs, sidewalks and letdowns and completing the final layer of asphalt paving along Ewen Avenue from Derwent Way to Hampton Street, weather dependent. This work will facilitate the Phase 2 completion of Ewen Avenue which is a fundamental east‐west connection across Queensborough that accommodates a range of transportation options including transit, walking and cycling.

    During completion of the final layer of asphalt (August 1st to 4th), access to any given driveway will be temporarily interrupted for up to 3 hours. In addition, there will be no parking on Ewen Avenue from Johnston Street to Hampton Street. Vehicles will be towed at the owner’s expense if these temporary restrictions are not followed. If special consideration is required please contact the City’s project manager. Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times and we will endeavor to minimize disruption as much as possible. However, as with a project of this nature, some disruption is inevitable.

    Duration: Monday, July 24, 2017 ‐ Friday, Aug 24, 2017

    Hours of Work: Monday – Saturday, 7am ‐ 8pm

    Road Closures: Ewen Ave. from Derwent Way to Hampton Street – Single‐lane closure

  • As part of the City of New Westminster’s 2017 Sewer Separation Program, road construction will be taking place on Hamilton Street between Tenth Street and Twelfth Street from July 10th to August 18th.

    Throughout Construction:

    • Typical hours of work will be from 7:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday;
    • Hamilton Street will be closed to all vehicular traffic; 
    • Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained at all times;
    • Traffic control personnel will be on site;
    • Parking will not be available during construction hours;
    • Residents that are directly impacted will be notified in advance of work commencing.

    In a combined sewer system, stormwater runoff is combined in a single pipe with wastewater from homes, businesses, and industry. During drier weather, the stormwater and wastewater are carried to the sewage treatment plant together. But in heavy rain, high volumes of stormwater can exceed the capacity of a combined sewer system. The excess, untreated amounts overflow and empty directly into our waterways. However, with sewer separation, rainwater and sewage are handled independently which helps limit environmental impacts.

    We will endeavor to minimize disruption as much as possible. However, as with a project of this nature, some disruption is inevitable.

    If you have any questions please contact the City’s Project Manager, Amir Aminpour at or 604 515 3796.

  • As part of the City of New Westminster's 2017 Capital Construction work plan, road reconstruction is taking place on Tenth Avenue in the following locations:

    • Tenth Avenue from Twelfth Street to Eighteenth Street in the Eastbound lane. Roadwork will take place between June 19th to July 28th. During construction work hours, single-lane alternating traffic will be in effect between the work hours of 9:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday to Friday. 
    • Tenth Avenue between Twelfth Street and Thirteenth Street on Saturday, June 24 from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm

    Please be advised that between 14th Street and 15th Street a section will remain unpaved and the gravel base will be exposed. Temporary paint lines and traffic delineators will remain in place for lane separation and water trucks will regularly wet down the gravel to minimize dust in the area.
