Vancouver events co-ordinating with busy construction season
CITY OF VANCOUVER — Crowds watch fireworks during the Honda Celebration of Light. The event is one of many returning to Vancouver this summer during a busy construction season.

VANCOUVER – Vancouver is looking to carefully co-ordinate summer construction projects with the return of major special summer events

“We are thrilled to be welcoming back so many cherished special events to Vancouver. They are an important part of fostering vibrant, thriving communities across the city, especially this year as we continue to recover from the pandemic,” said Lisa Parker, director of public space and street use, in a statement. “During this busy season, our staff work hard to balance special events and filming, while accommodating the necessary upgrades to our roads, sewers and watermains.”

Some of the major city road work and other projects include:

  • West King Edward Upgrades: Water, sewer and street infrastructure upgrades from Arbutus Street to Dunbar Street.
  • Knight Street Renewal: Paving upgrades from E 41st Ave. to E 60th Ave.
  • West 49th Avenue Upgrades: Sewer separation and transportation improvements from Cambie Sreet to Oak Street.
  • Joyce Street Upgrades: Watermain upgrades from Kingsway to Euclid Avenue.
  • Marine Drive Upgrades: Water, sewer and street infrastructure upgrades along Marine Drive between Oak Street and Victoria Drive (currently underway).
  • Renfrew Street Upgrades: Sewer separation with street and transportation improvements from McGill Street to E 1st Ave (currently underway)
  • Broadway Subway Project: Phased construction along Broadway continues at the future station sites, including Great Northern Way-Emily Carr, Mount Pleasant, Broadway-City Hall, Oak-VGH, South Granville and Arbutus.
  • Pender Street Sewer Project: Developer-led sewer upgrades from Jervis Street to Bute Street

The city will have to co-ordinate construction with dozens of major events this summer, including Canada Day, several marathons, the Honda Celebration of Lights, the Chinatown Festival, Greek Day, the Granville Promenade and more.
