Burrard Street (Davie to Beach) Water and Sewer Main Replacement Project

The City of Vancouver is replacing the water main, installing a separated sewer main, and repaving the road surface on Burrard Street from Davie to Beach.

Project details

Expected duration

  • Start: March/April 2016
  • End: October 2017

Hours of work

How this project may affect you

Construction will occur on portions of Pacific Street and Burrard Street at the same time. Each block may be impacted by construction for several months. The construction work is being carefully planned to limit the overall impact to residents, businesses, and road users.

We recognize the impacts of this project on the neighbourhood and appreciate your understanding as we complete this important infrastructure project.


During construction, 1 travel lane in each direction will stay open along Burrard Street and Pacific Street. Some full road closures will be needed on weekends to allow for major excavation, installation of deep sewers, and final paving.

Beach Avenue at the Burrard Bridge: COMPLETE


Parking on Burrard Street will be restricted to accommodate construction. Restrictions will change during the project and will be removed as soon as they are not needed.

Harwood Street west of Burrard Street

Parking restrictions are in place to make room for construction trailers.

Access to residences and businesses

Access to residences and businesses will be maintained at all times. Sidewalks and crosswalks will generally be maintained during construction.

Water supply

We will provide advance notice of any disruption to your water supply, except if there is an emergency. During construction, you may occasionally notice cloudy water. This cloudiness is not a health concern and will usually go away within a few hours.

How this project will improve the city

This project will improve water and sewer main infrastructure in Downtown South. Once replaced, the pipes are expected to serve the neighbourhood for 100 years.
