Updated December 12, 2022 – Crews installed the first of two pipes in early September and are beginning installation of the second pipe on December 13.
Due to the complex technical nature of this work, the pipe installation process is anticipated to take approximately 32 to 48 hours, continuously. During the pipe installation, periodic use of a hydraulic hammer may be required to move the pipe and will only take place if absolutely necessary.
Please be advised that these upcoming activities may temporarily increase noise levels, vibrations, and activity at each work area access point.
Metro Vancouver began construction of the Fraser River Crossing Project in early November, 2021. Two new pipes will be constructed under the Fraser River that will carry wastewater from the new pump station in the City of Maple Ridge (on the north side of Golden Ears Bridge) to the treatment plant in the Township of Langley. Work will continue to early 2023 and includes:
- Large vehicles and heavy equipment in the work area and on nearby roads.
- Parking restrictions.
- Traffic pattern changes and possible temporary delays.
- Construction noise and vibration.
What to expect:
- Crews are currently working 24 hours a day, seven days a week when necessary. The majority of construction will take place between 7am and 8pm. When possible, noisier activities will be limited to daytime hours.
- Anticipate approximately 15 to 20 truck deliveries per day.
- Road users are asked to please use caution while in the area and follow sign directions and traffic control personnel.
- Ongoing environmental monitoring, including vibration monitoring and regular assessments for the roadways and dike, will occur.
