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 coordinating street upgrades to improve safety for people walking, driving, and cycling, including improvements to the Haro Street Bikeway.
Water main replacement
Construction is currently underway on Haro St east of Denman St and within the 800 block of Gilford St.
Watermain work will primarily take place along Haro and Bute streets.
Watermain 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.
