Phase 2: Quebec Street and 2nd Avenue and Neighbourhood Energy Utility expansion

We’re continuing upgrades to repair the street, and improve comfort and safety for people walking and cycling in the area. These street improvements are also being coordinated with the expansion of the Southeast False Creek Neighbourhood Energy Utility.

Street improvements

This work will primarily take place along Quebec St from 1st to 3rd avenues, and 2nd Ave from Main to Ontario streets. Once complete, the streets will be improved for people walking, cycling, and driving through the neighbourhood with:

  • New sidewalks
  • A rehabilitated street
  • Increased capacity, comfort, and safety for people walking, cycling, and driving with the extension of the protected bike lane
  • New and upgraded traffic signals and street lights
  • Green infrastructure
  • An enhanced public realm with landscaped boulevards and trees

Neighbourhood Energy Utility expansion

The Neighbourhood Energy Utility (NEU) uses waste thermal energy captured from sewage to provide space heating and hot water to buildings in the Southeast False Creek and Great Northern Way neighbourhoods. 

By expanding the NEU, we can provide this renewable energy to several additional neighbourhoods, including areas of Mount Pleasant, the False Creek Flats, and Northeast False Creek. 

What's happening

Construction is underway along Quebec St and 2nd Ave. The following traffic impacts will generally be in effect along Quebec St:

  • one lane each direction from E 1st to E 3rd Ave
  • one lane each direction from Main to Ontario St
