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 NOVEMBER 12th 2021)

Construction Update: The Future Mount Pleasant Station

 

November 12, 2021

The Broadway Subway Project Corporation (BSPC) is in your neighbourhood continuing major construction near the future Mount Pleasant Station. Upcoming activities include:

November-December: Installing the traffic deck on E. Broadway between Main and Quebec streets; beginning excavation on the south side of E. Broadway; and excavating the ventilation shafts on Quebec Street.

•January: Completing the traffic deck; and beginning bulk excavation below the traffic deck.

Residents and businesses may experience some noise and vibration as the traffic deck installation proceeds. People in the area should expect congestion, sidewalk modifications, possible temporary street closures, temporary lane closures at night to move equipment, accommodate inspections or complete repairs, and reduced street parking, speed limits and travel lanes. Please plan extra travel time, watch for wayfinding information, and obey traffic control personnel and all signs. All businesses remain open and access to businesses and parking lots will be maintained.

We know that construction can be disruptive, and we are working hard to minimize impacts in your neighbourhood and on your property. We will continue to keep you informed in advance of work to help you plan accordingly.

See notices for each construction activity for more information. BSPC will directly contact the businesses and residents we anticipate will be affected closer to the start of major construction activities.
