Construction will impact North Road, just north of Lougheed Highway on the Burnaby/Coquitlam border to Hume Park in New Westminster. Work may lead to temporary road closures and delays, increased truck traffic in the area and temporary property access restrictions. Construction is expected to be completed by summer 2020. Learn more about this project »
