Arthur Drive (28 Avenue to 44 Avenue)

Arthur Drive Road Improvements Update

Phase one of the Arthur Drive project is substantially complete. Phase two will begin in 2017 from Delta Port Way to Augustine House. Thank you again for your support as we work together to improve Arthur Drive.

Overview

The Arthur Drive project is part of Delta's Neighbourhood Road Improvements Plan, which was introduced in 2012 to address aging roads and sidewalks in our community.

The proposed improvements along Arthur Drive will be constructed in three phases. The first phase (from Augustine House to 44 Avenue) will be constructed in 2016. The works included in this phase generally include:

  • Slight roadway widening as necessary to accommodate two travel lanes and two cycle lanes;
  • New concrete sidewalk on the east side of Arthur Drive between Augustine House and Kirkland House and on the west side of Arthur Drive between the Kirkland House (4140 Arthur Drive) and Whitworth Crescent south, including curb and gutter. The sidewalk along the west side north of Whitworth Crescent will be replaced to accommodate roadway widening;
  • Pedestrian actuated signal and crosswalk at the Kirkland House;
  • Illuminated pedestrian crosswalk at the intersection of Whitworth Crescent and Arthur Drive and at Sacred Heart Elementary School;
  • Traffic signal improvements at 44 Avenue;
  • Street lighting improvements between Augustine House and Kirkland House, which will be standard davit led lights;
  • Street lighting improvements between Kirkland House and 44 Avenue, which will be decorative Ladner Village style lamps and poles;
  • Roadway repaving along Arthur Drive between Augustine House and 44 Avenue and along Whitworth Crescent;
  • Improvements to bus stops between Augustine House and 44 Avenue

The second phase of the project (from Deltaport Way to Augustine House) is scheduled for Spring 2017. The works included in this phase are:

  • Slight roadway widening as necessary to accommodate two travel lanes and two cycle lanes;
  • Street lighting improvements;
  • Roadway repaving along Arthur Drive between Deltaport Way and Augustine House.

The third phase of the project (from 28 Avenue to Deltaport Way) is currently scheduled for 2018, subject to Council approval and Metro Vancouver’s watermain construction. The works included in this phase are:

  • Watermain replacement;
  • Roadway repaving;
  • Street light improvements at 53 Street and 28 Avenue;
  • Slight road widening.

 

Tentative construction phasing schedule is as follows:

  • Spring 2016 – Third-party utility pole relocations
  • Summer 2016 – Road construction and underground utility replacements along Arthur Drive between Augustine House and 44 Avenue
  • Summer 2017 – Road construction along Arthur Drive between Deltaport Way and Augustine House
