Major Roadwork & Construction Projects
  • 660 Quayside (Bosa Development)

    Quayside Drive (600-700 block) closed for 24 hours, October 22, 2021.

    For approximately 24 hours starting at 6:00 am on Friday October 22, the 600 block and 700 block of Quayside Drive (from Begbie Street to the west end of the Fraser River Discovery Centre) will be closed.

    There will be no vehicular access to the Riverfront area via this road during this time, however, pedestrian, bicycle and wheelchair access will be maintained. Detours will be set up for passenger vehicles to use the McInnes Overpass and the Third Avenue Overpass, and for large trucks to use the Third Avenue Overpass only to enter and exit the Riverfront area. Please see map below showing the road closure area nd the detour routes. Please obey all signs and traffic control personnel at all times.

    This closure is required for Bosa to complete a very large concrete pour for the west tower. Concrete pours require a continuous flow of concrete to be laid which means a continuous flow of cement trucks in and out of the the site. Given the size of the towers, a very large concrete pour, and therefore, numerous cement trucks are needed over the span of approximately 24 hours. The cement trucks will be travelling along Front Street and using this section of Quayside Drive. In the event of a train, the cement trucks will be temporarily re-routed to the Third Avenue Overpass. 

    Expected noise from this work includes the movement of large trucks and equipment, backup beepers and construction members talking to each other. 

    Bosa thanks you for your patience and understanding while they complete this work. For questions, please email

  • Agnes Street Greenway

    Construction on the interim Agnes Greenway is now complete. Construction of the permanent greenway is expected to commence in Winter 2021/22.

    Update (August 24, 2021)

    Greenway Users
    The interim greenway is now open for use. Please note that the interim greenway ends at Douglas College. Please stay tuned for updates as we continue to develop an interim greenway connection to Carnarvon Street.

    Transit Changes - UPDATED
    Transit routes have been adjusted. Route #103 (Victoria Hill) now operates eastbound from Fourth St. along Carnarvon Street and Elliot Street, then returns to its regular route along Agnes Street. A bus stop has been installed on Carnarvon Street at Merivale Street to serve this route. Route #105 (to Canada Games Pool and Uptown) now operates up Fourth Street to Royal Avenue, eastbound on Royal Avenue, southbound on Merivale Street, and then on its regular route along Agnes Street. A bus stop has been installed on Fourth Street at Agnes Street to serve this route. Going toward downtown and SkyTrain, both routes still operate along Agnes Street.

    See transit re-routing map with updated bus stops.

    Please note that City staff continue to work with TransLink and Coast Mountain Bus Company as we consider further changes to transit routes to address concerns being shared with us. We will share further information if changes to transit will be made.

    Driving & Parking
    A portion of Agnes Street (Merivale Street to Sixth Street) is now one-way westbound for motor vehicle traffic. Access to Merivale Street from Royal Avenue has now been re-opened to accommodate the transit routing noted above. Changes to on-street parking are in place.

  • Phillips Street Upgrade

    The project involves complete road improvements for approximately 180 meters of Phillips Street

    Project Update

    The project is now complete; however, crews will continue to work on landscaping, property restoration, and repaving.

    Thank you for your continued patience throughout the project. 

    Project Details

    The project involves complete road improvements for approximately 180 linear meters of Phillips Street from Canil Avenue to Ewen Avenue. The work includes the installation of storm sewers, road structure, sidewalks, barrier curbs, landscaping and street lighting.  

    The City’s contractor is scheduled to commence construction starting June 1, 2020 and is anticipated to be completed within a few months, weather dependent.  There will be some minor interruptions with respect to the construction.  The contractor will require staging areas along the street for construction and will be defined by fencing and signage.  We respectfully ask that residents and visitors not park in these areas.  Access to parking will be impacted due to the nature of the work.  We will endeavor to minimize disruption as much as possible. However, as with a project of this nature, some disruption is inevitable. 

    June 1, 2020 - July 2021

    Hours of Work
    Monday-Friday, 7am - 7pm

    Road Closures
    Traffic will be maintained. Temporary road closures and traffic delays. Alternate access points will be provided and advance notice will be given. 

    Temporary property access restrictions, as well as parking will be impacted. Please obey “no parking” signs as they will be moved daily. Temporary sidewalk restrictions.
