Vedder Road Widening: Keith Wilson - Watson

Construction Timeline:

  • September 2020 - March 2022
    • Expect Delays:
      • Sidewalk, driveway and boulevard restoration works will continue thru the summer but travel lanes will be maintained.

Current Works:

  • New traffic signal base installations scheduled for later this summer at the Thomas intersection to avoid impacts to pedestrians and traffic from nearby schools.
  • BC Hydro/Telus pole relocation works anticipated to start late this summer and continue thru the Fall.
  • Two-way traffic will be maintained.

Project Details:

  • The widening of Vedder Road is part of a larger construction package that will include the widening of Promontory Road from Vedder Elementary east to Chester Drive, and the upgrade of Prest Road from Highway #1 to McGuire Road.
  • Council has awarded these works in one package to Eurovia BC. Bundling multiple roadway projects together helps keep costs low while ensuring the works are coordinated in a way that minimizes the impact to the community.
  • The improvements along Vedder Road include road widening to four travel lanes, a centre turning lane, bike lanes, sidewalks and streetlights on both sides of the corridor, along with the relocation of the overhead BC Hydro and Telus poles.
