Street view of West 49th Ave

West 49th Avenue upgrades

We’re upgrading critical sewer infrastructure and making transportation upgrades along West 49th Avenue from Cambie Street to Oak Street.

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

We will also be repaving the street and improving bike lanes between Cambie and Oak streets.

What's happeningSewer construction is now complete

Transportation and street improvements will continue, including:

  • Street paving through April 2024
  • Bike lane improvements through fall 2024 

Starting March 25, during spring break, we'll be working at the Tisdall and W 49th Ave intersection near Annie B Jamieson Elementary School. This timing helps us reduce disruption to school and college traffic.

We aim to finish paving before the BMO Marathon in May and complete all work at the intersection before school starts again.
