Fraser Highway Road Renewal and Water Main Replacement Project Approved (Between 201A and 203)

Last night, Langley City Council issued a tender for replacing the water mains under Fraser Highway Between 201A Street and 203rd Street and repaving the road. This total project is $2.8 million. Richco Contracting Ltd. is the contractor for the project for a cost of $2.1 million. ISL Engineering and Land Services Ltd. is the contract administrator for $71,160.00. The contract administrator ensures that the contractor stays on course and on time. The remaining project cost is reserved for contingency and will be returned to the City's reserves if those funds are not needed.

There are many active road projects in and around our Downtown area. As you have seen in our last two budgets, Langley City Council is committed to working on the basics: water, sewer, and roads. You are seeing the results of these Council decisions in action. Construction is disruptive, but the results will be better roads and the continued safe delivery of water and sewer services.

City staff and Council know that SkyTrain construction will start soon. We've priority work in our Downtown area, west of 204th Street, to ensure we are not conflicting with the major construction of SkyTrain through our community.
