The Tasker Floodbox, located along River Road at 80 Street, is in need of replacement. The floodbox is comprised of timber construction materials which are nearing the end of their service life. Additionally, the discharge pipes from the 80 Street Pump Station, just north of the floodbox, have failed and are in need of emergency replacement. This infrastructure, which runs under River Road, forms part of Delta’s irrigation system and is vital to providing irrigation water to Delta’s farming community.
Due to the location of the works, emergency replacement of the discharge pipes, depth of excavation, and nearby underground utilities, a temporary full road closure is required along River Road to facilitate construction in a safe and timely manner. The full road closure will be in effect from June 26, 2017, at the earliest, until September 8, 2017.
All local traffic will be detoured via Huston Road, River Way and 82 Street, as per the Road Closure Detour Plan. The Tilbury Intersection at the South Fraser Perimeter Road (SFPR), will continue to provide unimpeded access to River Road and the Tilbury Business Park.
The works is expected to begin late-June 2017 and commence through until mid-September 2017.
