Haro and Bute Infrastructure Upgrades

We’re upgrading critical water infrastructure and improving safety for all users along sections of Haro, Bute, Denman, Gilford, and Chilco streets. 

Work includes replacing the existing water main below Haro and Bute with a larger-capacity system. This new water main will have a life expectancy of about 100 years to help serve this growing neighbourhood while also improving the system’s seismic resiliency. 

We’re also upgrading various key locations and intersections to improve safety for people walking, driving, and cycling.

What's happening

Construction is scheduled to begin at Robson St between Chilco and Gilford streets and progress eastward. 



Work will primarily take place along Haro and Bute streets.


Construction is scheduled in two phases from spring 2019 to late summer 2020:

  • Phase 1: Haro St from Chilco to Thurlow streets
  • Phase 2: Bute St from Haro to W Pender streets

As an example of coordinated planning, this work is upgrading multiple infrastructure assets to minimize longer-term disruptions.
