The Broadway Subway Project has started its construction phase on the SW corner of Main St. & Broadway and adjacent streets. The demolition of the old Tim Horton’s and the adjacent building has been completed.  We are seeing some utility relocations at 8th and Main to facilitate the eventual tunnel. Both of these events going on at the same time are creating a much larger impression of what the worksite will look like later this month. The sewer relocation work should be completed by the end of  June. The station work going on on the block of Broadway, from Main to Quebec street right now is to build a heavy steel deck. This will allow work to proceed beneath the deck without closing Broadway. We will be seeing ( or have already seen ) some lane changes to facilitate that work. This work should proceed until the end of the summer. We anticipate disruptions over the next months, as actual construction begins. MPBIA staff are checking the site daily, and any disruptions will hopefully be kept to a minimum. We will be posting the construction updates below. These are from either the City of Vancouver or the Broadway Subway Group. The MPBIA is here to help mitigate any issues that we are able to. Please feel free to contact Neil@mpbia.ca

Current Disruptions (AS OF OCTOBER 18th 2021)

 

Traffic deck installation starts in Mount Pleasant in October

 

October 18, 2021 

The Broadway Subway Project Corporation (BSPC) is in your neighbourhood building an at-grade, safe and consistent four-lane traffic deck. Late in October, installation of the traffic deck will start on the north side of E. Broadway, starting from Main Street and moving west towards Quebec Street. This work involves placing support beams and deck plates at night and then bolting the traffic deck in place during the day. Once work on the northside is complete, traffic will shift to the north and traffic deck installation work will continue on the south side of E. Broadway. Work is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

 

Residents and businesses may experience some noise and vibration during the installation and bolting of the traffic deck. People in the area should expect congestion, possible temporary lane closures, and reduced street parking, speed limits and travel lanes. We also anticipate sidewalk modifications on Quebec Street at E. Broadway. Please plan extra time, watch for wayfinding information, and obey traffic control personnel and all signs. Check out our Project video for more details on how we are building the traffic deck. The shaded area on map below illustrates the area of work.
