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.
