Test holes dug along 200th Street


Crews are digging test holes on 200th Street in Langley City, the start of the Carvolth Trunk Sewer No. 2 Infrastructure Upgrade.

The holes are to confirm the locations of underground utilities and have been covered over when no longer needed.

With partial lane closures, this is the first interruption motorists have seen for the Carvolth Trunk Sewer No. 2 Infrastructure Upgrade which starts this fall and not this summer as originally announced. The upgrade will take eight to 12 months.

The areas dug up so far include 200th Street between Michaud Crescent and 57A Avenue and on 57A Avenue just east of 200th Street. Crews will also be doing test digs alongside the pathway between Michaud Crescent and 53rd Avenue and off the roadway west of 53rd Avenue near 198A Street.

The Carvolth Trunk Sewer is a joint project between Metro Vancouver and Langley City. The $10 million project involves construction of a new sewer pipe, possible repairs of an existing sewer, and coordination of planned upgrades to municipal utilities. The construction area will cover from Fraser Highway east of 200th Street at the north end to 53rd Avenue at the south end.

The current underground services date as far back as the 1970s.

People are being asked to divert around the area during construction and the impacts on traffic.

Anyone with questions or concerns about the project can contact the community liaison officer at 604-436-6986, available Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or the Metro Vancouver Information Centre at 604-432-6200, during the same hours. The after hours emergency number is 604-451-6610.
