Upcoming Infrastructure Projects
At the January 9th, 2018 Regular Council Meeting, the Gateway Transportation Collaboration Forum (GTCF) presented to Council regarding the status of proposed projects affecting the Pitt Meadows community. These projects include:
- the Kennedy Rd. overpass
- the Allen Way interchange
- the Harris Rd. underpass
At this time, the Harris Road underpass and Kennedy Road overpass proposed projects have been submitted to the federal government for funding under the National Trade Corridors Fund. A response on potential funding is expected by the end of March 2018.
The presentation was intended to begin the process of informing and engaging the public on these important traffic related projects. The City will be working closely with senior governments and agencies to ensure that the community is informed on the impacts of these projects, and community engagement for public feedback will be a part of next steps.
View the Council meeting presentation by GTCF, including information and renderings of the proposed projects, and the Council discussion afterward.
Proposed project concepts
In September 2017, Mayor Becker met with senior members of CP Rail, who shared a map of planned infrastructure projects throughout the lower mainland designed to improve the flow of goods throughout our region, including three projects that will directly impact the City of Pitt Meadows: the Kennedy Rd. Overpass, the Allen Way Interchange, and the Harris Rd. Underpass. View the map.
These projects were developed by the Gateway Transportation Collaboration Forum (GTCF), which is a partnership between several senior agencies, including Transport Canada, Ministry of Transportation & Infrastructure, CP Rail, TransLink, Greater Vancouver Gateway Council, and Port Metro Vancouver.
The projects are in the process of being submitted to the provincial and federal governments for review and approval.
