Mar 11, 2019


Metro Vancouver is working in your neighbourhood to improve the delivery of clean, safe drinking water.

South Delta Water Main Project

As you may know, Metro Vancouver is constructing the South Delta Water Main Project in the City of Delta and Tsawwassen First Nation. This essential project involves replacing an existing water main, installing new underground valve chambers and connecting the new main to the existing water distribution system.

Upcoming Work

Upcoming work for this project will include installing a section of water main at Arthur Drive/53 Street and 34B Avenue in the City of Delta. This work will begin in early March and take approximately one month to complete.

Traffic Impacts

24-hour road closures will be in place along 34B Avenue beginning at the intersection of Arthur Drive/53 Street and heading east for approximately 100 metres for the duration of the work. In addition, there will be single lane alternating traffic in place along Arthur Drive/53 Street at 34B Avenue on March 9 and 10, 2019. Detours will be in place; please follow the direction of traffic control personnel and signage.

Hours of Work & Noise

Work will take place from Monday to Friday between 7 AM and 7 PM. Crews may be required to work some evenings or weekends to complete a specific task or to maintain the construction schedule.

All work will comply with City of Delta noise bylaws or granted bylaw variances. Crews will make every effort to minimize noise where possible.

Metro Vancouver is working closely with the City of Delta to reduce impacts to residents and the community as much as possible. We thank you for your patience while this necessary work is completed.
