Fraser Highway work underway

Tunnel being upgraded to underpass

From 8 p.m. on Friday Nov. 25, until 5 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 28, the stretch of Fraser Highway between Old Yale Road and 216 Street will be closed to traffic while crews replace an underpass beneath Fraser Highway.

The tunnel, which was originally built to move livestock, will be upgraded as a pedestrian underpass linking Langley City’s  trail system to the Derek Doubleday Arbouretum.

Throughout the weekend, vehicles will be re-routed along 56 and 48 Avenues, while Old Yale Road will remain open for local traffic, City Council heard at its Monday night meeting.

Councillor Dave Hall asked whether there would be any signs put up, asking that only local traffic use Old Yale Road.

“We’re still working on a traffic plan to address the issue,” said engineer Gary Vlieg.

“We don’t want to direct the volume of traffic Fraser Highway carries (onto Old Yale Road).”
