Update: Lane Closures for Gas Line Upgrade


As part of important gas line upgrades by FortisBC, lane closures are now in place on Lougheed Highway in Burnaby. This means that currently:

  • Work continues east along Lougheed Highway this week, extending to just west of Sperling Avenue.
  • Lane closures between Holdom to Kensington Avenues, with traffic being moved to the south side of the street and reduced to one lane in each direction.
  • The intersection of Sperling Avenue and Lougheed Highway is unaffected and will remain open in all directions.
  • Construction is anticipated to finish mid-November.
  • Burnaby construction hours: 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday; 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The BBOT has been communicating information about this closure to members in the area for several months, including at a joint BBOT-Fortis event in June, and will continue to share updates with the business community.
