Pattullo Gas Line Replacement

September 7, 2022

Bringing the new gas line into operation

With our new gas line almost complete, work is about to start testing it and connecting it to our existing system. In coming weeks this will include work at Lougheed Highway, and the intersection of 16th Avenue and 4th Street. This includes: Full closure of 16th Avenue west of the 4th Street intersection until late October, with motorists able to detour via 10th Avenue to Cariboo Road.  Full closure of 4th Street north of the 16th Avenue intersection until late October. Lane closures on Lougheed Highway at the intersections of Sperling and Springer avenues until late October, with at least one westbound and one eastbound lane maintained at all times. Some overnight work anticipated for mid-September, and Sunday work throughout September. Short periods of loud work near Lougheed Highway and Sperling Avenue, and 16th Avenue and 4th Street, as air compressors are needed to test and dry the new gas line. We apologize for the disruptions this work causes and appreciate the community’s patience as we complete these final steps installing our new gas line.

Upcoming Lakefield Drive paving

We are preparing to pave Lakefield Drive as our work in the area nears completion. This will mean road and lane closures in September, to give our crews the space they need to work safely and as quickly as possible. Mid to late September: Rolling full road closures of about 200-300m on Lakefield Drive between Nursery Street and Reigate Road, to support milling. Currently estimated for September 14-22. Late September: A two-day full road closure between Nursery Street and Reigate Road during working hours (7am to 5pm), to support paving. Currently estimated for September 22-23. These dates are subject to change, including due to weather, and our interactive traffic map is the best place to access the latest information on road and lane closures.
