Downtown Vancouver: Paving marks end of West Georgia water main project

Commuters should expect delays Wednesday to late Friday

THE West Georgia water main upgrades are now complete with the final paving process to begin Wednesday, April 22 and continuing until late Friday, April 24. The work is weather dependent and may have to be rescheduled if it rains. City crews will begin paving between Thurlow and Howe streets. Commuters should expect delays and plan alternate routes, the City of Vancouver announced on Monday..

West Georgia traffic impacts:

·       1 lane in each direction on Burrard from Pender to Alberni will be retained

Thursday, April 23

·       Closure of Burrard from Pender to Alberni until 7 a.m. (one lane retained for transit)

·       1 lane each direction to re-open at 7a.m. on Burrard

·       1 lane each direction to re-open at 3 p.m. on Georgia

Installed almost 100 years ago, the current water main had reached the end of its service life and had a history of frequent breaks. Crews installed 375 metres of new water main, which will last about 100 years and contribute to a more seismically resilient water network.
