Delta Street Revitalization Project
Jan 07, 2016
The Delta Street Revitalization Project is starting soon. When complete in Fall 2016, the work will showcase a key part of Ladner Village, illuminating a charming and accessible streetscape that is home to great businesses and a connected community.
Delta Street Revitalization was one of the projects featured at the South Delta Infrastructure Improvements Public Open House on December 3, 2015. Delta’s Engineering Department thanks all the residents and business owners who came out and engaged with our staff, your feedback and insight is of tremendous value.
“Good to see that the trees are being replaced by ones that won’t destroy the sidewalks,” read one of the feedback forms submitted by a resident at the Public Open House.
The streetscape improvement project, part of Delta's Neighbourhood Road Improvements Plan, will focus on Delta Street from 48 Avenue to Chisholm Street; supporting the vision of the South Delta Business Sustainability Strategy by revitalizing and investing in South Delta infrastructure and strengthening the village core.
Proposed improvements along Delta Street include:
- Sidewalk replacements to improve safety and accessibility
- Installation of a root barrier system and new street trees to prevent future sidewalk damage
- Decorative pedestrian plaza at the intersection of Delta Street and Bridge Street
- Decorative stamped/coloured pedestrian crosswalks at intersections
- New landscaping areas that include irrigation
- New bicycle racks, benches, decorative bollards, banner poles and garbage receptacles
- Removal of existing street lights and installation of new LED decorative Ladner Village style street lighting (including hanging baskets with irrigation)
- Sidewalk drainage improvements including storm sewer upgrades
- Watermain replacement
- Pavement reconstruction
“This has been a long time coming. As an owner of a restaurant on Delta Street, the businesses in the area are looking forward to improvements, especially the sidewalk updates, that will make the area more accessible and inviting for tourists and locals,” said Andrea Frustaci, President of the Ladner Business Association.
To minimize disruption to residents and businesses, improvement works will occur block by block, so that only one block of Delta Street is affected by the construction at a time.
We encourage everyone to shop local and continue supporting the local business community during these necessary improvements! For more information visit our project office at 4811 Delta Street in Ladner or on the web at Delta.ca/DeltaStreet
