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 until early October:
- Traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction between Madison Avenue and Springer Avenue
- Beginning in the evening of September 17, traffic between Delta Avenue and Springer Avenue will be shifted to the south side of the street and reduced to one lane in each direction.
- Bicycle lanes on Lougheed Highway are also closed. The westbound cyclist detour starts at Holdom Avenue, and the eastbound detour starts at Gilmore Avenue.
- Burnaby construction hours: 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday to Friday; 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday
- Bainbridge Avenue will also be closed between Lougheed Highway and Broadway.
To keep traffic flowing, Fortis is keeping a number of north-south routes open, including Madison Avenue, Willingdon Avenue, Alpha Avenue and Beta Avenue by tunneling under those intersections.
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.
