Temporary Traffic Route for Columbia Street - August 01, 2018
Due to unforeseen complexities in the technical nature of the work as well as unanticipated ground conditions, the project completion date has been extended to December 2018 and additional impacts to Columbia Street are expected to take place as early as August 13 to the end of October.
Eastbound traffic on Columbia Street will be diverted to Royal Avenue through this phase of construction; the westbound lane will remain open. Crews will make efforts to open an eastbound lane on Columbia Street whenever possible.
For the full details of this Project Update please review the update letter. Thank you for your patience as we conduct this necessary work.
New Truck Detour Route for Front Street in New Westminster - May 10, 2018
Due to the sewer upgrade project on Front Street between Columbia Street and Begbie Street in the City of New Westminster, westbound truck traffic (with 3 axles or more) will now be detoured via Braid Street and East Eighth Avenue to McBride Boulevard, then onto either East Tenth Avenue or Royal Avenue. Severely restricted lane widths near the construction work zone will restrict the passage of all large vehicles.
Regular vehicle traffic can still use Front Street, with a short detour via Begbie Street.
Motorists should reduce speeds in the work zones and expect delays. Please use extra caution near pedestrian areas and follow posted signage and the directions of traffic control personnel.
