Ferguson Road improvement work

2021_Aug_aerial (1)

We are leading a number of construction projects to maintain our infrastructure and enhance efficiencies for the benefit of our passengers, partners, tenants, workers, and the broader community.

One of these projects is the Ferguson Road Improvement Work. This project will see us realign and repave the road and create a multi-use pathway to ensure it supports the safe access to Iona Beach Park. The multi-use pathway will run from the McDonald Road Junction to the west end of the airport and includes dedicated lanes for cyclists and pedestrians. The work is scheduled to be complete by April 2024, with paving work taking place from September 2023 through November 2023.

The work also includes the installation of water mains under Ferguson Road. This installation work will begin in the coming days. Access to Ferguson Road for all road users, including cyclists and pedestrians, will be maintained and we are making every effort to reduce the impact of construction on the community, partners, tenants and workers. However, the project will require some detours around construction zones.

Safety and security are our top priorities. Details of the detours to make way for this important work are outlined below. We encourage all road users to always follow signs and direction from traffic personnel. Please note, rougher road surface during construction is expected.

  • Installation of new water meters is scheduled for early spring 2024.
  • Milling and paving work will be carried out on the old Ferguson Road near Canada Post from April 2024 to May 2024. 
  • Installation of reflective road markers will take place between Grauer Road and the new Ferguson Road in May 2024. 
  • Vegetation will be planted on the new Ferguson Road and the multi-use pathway from June 2024 to November 2024.

We are carefully planning and staging our work to minimize the overall project duration, however the exact duration of the work is dependent on several factors, including weather conditions.

All project updates will be shared on this page. Please reach out to community_relations@yvr.ca with questions or concerns.
