This coming summer is looking to be a busy season for road work and street use.

The City of Vancouver has announced a number of construction projects and upcoming special events that will cause road closures and traffic woes for commuters.

A number of projects will begin in April and May, including sewer and water main upgrades along Nanaimo Street and Boundary Road.

“Part of building a city we love is to ensure the proper functioning of a critical infrastructure,” says Jerry Dobrovolny, General Manager of Engineering Services.

In total, the City plans to upgrade 16 km of street network, 9 km of water main, and 4 km of sewer main.
