A section of Delta roadway is closing for several months.
A report to city council from the engineering department notes that Metro Vancouver will be undertaking construction of a new 1.8 metre (6 foot) diameter transmission watermain on 96 Avenue between 117B Street and the Southern Rail corridor in North Delta.
It’s part of a broader regional upgrade project.
Delta staff have been authorized to coordinate the closure with the City of Surrey.
A traffic management plan and emergency response provisions have been developed through consultations between Delta, Surrey and Metro Vancouver, the report notes.
Metro Vancouver has now contracted out the work and construction is commencing this month, with an approximate completion date in January 2022.
