Update: Lane Closures for Gas Line Upgrade


Important gas line upgrades by FortisBC are restarting this month.  As part of this upgrade, construction will begin again in north Burnaby and then continue into Coquitlam, resulting in the following lane closures and traffic restrictions:

Location Starting Description
Lougheed Hwy, Kensington Avenue to Bainbridge Avenue March 2 One eastbound lane and one westbound lane kept open
Madison Avenue/Lougheed Highway intersection March 5 Southbound lanes closed on Madison Avenue from Halifax Street
Broadway/Como Lake Avenue, east and west of North Road Early March One eastbound lane and one westbound lane kept open

The Burnaby Board of Trade has been communicating information about these closures to members in the areas affected throughout the project’s construction, including at a joint BBOT-Fortis event in 2018. We will continue to share updates with the business community to help you understand the project, and plan around any inconveniences. If you have any questions or concerns about this project, feel free to contact the Burnaby Board of Trade at cory@bbot.ca or contact Fortis at their TalkingEnergy.ca site, read the announcement on 2019 construction, or watch the below fly-over video explaining the route through Burnaby.
