Metro Vancouver will actively work with the contractor to monitor and manage project related traffic throughout construction. To minimize traffic impacts, our contractor will:
- Deliver construction material and equipment via Fleetwood Way. 154 Street will only be used for crew access and special deliveries
- Maintain the temporary walking path on Fleetwood Way and 154 Street to allow pedestrians to safely cross the streets
- Place traffic control personnel and signage on-site to ensure drivers, pedestrians, and cyclists can safely move around the construction area. Additional personnel will be in place during school start and end hours
- Remove equipment and obstructions to maximize public access to roadways and sidewalks at the end of each work day
How Will This Project Impact the Local Community?
Metro Vancouver recognizes that construction activities will impact the Fleetwood community and park visitors. As part of our commitment to minimize project impacts wherever possible, we identified potential impacts early in the process and planned measures to prevent or reduce them during construction.
Keep Park Partially Open
For safety reasons, a large part of Meagan Anne MacDougall Park will be closed during construction, including the existing playground. The contractor will create a temporary walking path through the park to allow visitors to safely enjoy the areas that will remain open.
Reduce Noise and Vibration
Based on the feedback received during the 2019 open house, we will install sound barriers along the construction site:
- 10" high, precast concrete noise barriers on the west and east sides
- Modular fencing with sound blankets on the north and south sides
The sound barriers will contain the noise within the site or force the sound to travel a longer distance before reaching residences located near the project area.
