Impacts to traffic, parking, residents and businesses

The City of Vancouver is undertaking to rehabilitate the soil underneath the stretch of road along Broadway from Commercial Drive to Glen Drive. A new construction technique called deep soil mixing will be used to accelerate the program and ensure the worksites are as small as possible, allowing more traffic to be unaffected and buses to run more smoothly. The eastside curb lane will be closed throughout construction.

The city recognizes the impact that this project will have on the neighbourhood and we appreciate your understanding and patience as we undertake this important improvement project. We will make every effort to minimize the impact of our construction on your daily routines.

During construction, please feel free to discuss any immediate concerns you may have with the crew on site, as they will be happy to assist you.

How this project will improve the city

This project will improve the road condition along Broadway to support the intensive bus traffic.
