Project Update

  • ALBERT STREET SEWER PROJECT UPDATE - posted on May 26, 2020

    ​As you may know, Metro Vancouver has been upgrading the Albert Street Sewer along Seaforth Way, Clarke Road, and Spring Street to ensure continued protection of public health and the environment.

    Schedule Update

    While the majority of construction for the first phase of this project is complete, crews will be returning intermittently over the summer months to conduct maintenance work in the area. Work will include crews opening manholes and working around them and the use of vacuum trucks during periods of heavy rainfall.

    Next Steps

    The next phase of this project, extending from Clarke Street to Vintner Street (see map for location), is anticipated to begin in fall 2020 and will continue for approximately six months.

    Thank You
