Users of Highway 1 in North Vancouver are being advised of overnight road closures set to take place over the next couple of weekends, due to ongoing road construction and highway upgrades.
- $235-million in funding announced to reduce congestion on Highway 1 through Langley
- Metro Vancouver mayors agree on need for new 8-lane George Massey Tunnel
- BC Ferries to offer discounts for off-peak sailings on major routes
The closures begin this Saturday (April 27), and are the latest phase in the Lower Lynn Improvement Project, which is meant to ease traffic congestion on the North Shore.
According to the provincial government, the closures are necessary to allow for the demolition of the Old Mountain Highway Overpass, as part of the project.
The closures will affect the highway in both directions, between the Lynn Valley and Fern Street exits. Road maintenance vehicles will be actively working on this route, and detour routes will be in effect.
“Nearby residents may be affected by noise caused by demolition equipment,” the ministry said. They added that “every effort” is being made “to complete this work as quickly and safely as possible to minimize disturbances to the community.”
The following dates and times are scheduled for night work:
- April 27‐28, 2019 — 11 pm to 5 am
- May 3‐5, 2019 — 11 pm to 5 am
