Intersection at Victoria Dr and E 1st Ave

Victoria Drive area renewal

We’re upgrading critical water, sewer, and street infrastructure along sections of Victoria Dr between East 1st Ave and East 10th Ave.

Work includes water main upgrades and replacing the existing sewer with a separated and larger-capacity system, with one pipe for rainwater runoff and another pipe for sanitary sewer. This new water and sewer infrastructure will have a life expectancy of 100 years to help serve this growing neighbourhood.

In coordination with these upgrades, there's an opportunity to improve Victoria Dr making it safer and more comfortable for everyone including the addition of bike route connections from East 8th Ave to East 10th Ave and signal upgrades to create safer crossings in the area.

What's happeningRelocation of TELUS duct 

Ahead of the 2021 infrastructure upgrades, TELUS Communications Inc's contractor Ledcor Technical Services (LTS) will begin work to relocate a TELUS duct between 3rd Ave and Broadway. This work will take place in 3 phases from early November 2020 to spring 2021.

Work will include the construction and installation of a new telecommunications structure and communications cable as well as the decommissioning of existing TELUS structures. For questions regarding the upcoming LTS/TELUS asset relocation work, call 1-800-689-6331.
