The City of Langley is undertaking a major refurbishment of the 200 Street Bridge crossing the Nicomekl River. The bridge, constructed in 1976, was designed for a 50-year lifespan and, based on a recent condition assessment, requires the repairs to the concrete deck and structural repairs. We anticipate the repairs will extend the life of the bridge by a minimum of 20 years.
The $1.45 million project is being constructed by Seismic 2000 Ltd., a local construction company that has significant experience in bridge repairs and seismic upgrades. The work is scheduled to commence early August 2017 and the anticipated completion is end of October 2017, weather permitting.
Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction which will be in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during the construction period. Motorists can expect delays and, where possible, should consider an alternate route. Motorists should apply caution when driving through the construction zone and obey all construction signs and traffic control personnel. During construction, cyclists will be temporarily detoured to the 203 Street corridor.

The City of Langley and the Township of Langley are undertaking stormwater drainage improvements to 210 St and Newlands Drive. The improvements will divert the storm from culverts that run through backyards along 210 Street and Newlands Drive and reduce the risk of flooding on private properties.
City crew will be completing the installation of a storm sewer main and will also be completing watermain upgrades which include replacement of the existing watermain and connection to 47 Avenue through the walkway and Iris Mooney Park. The watermain upgrades will improve water quality and pressure in the area and reduce the risk of watermain breaks or leaks.
The utility work is scheduled to start at the end February and will take approximately 6-8 weeks. During this time the road pavement may be uneven but will be patched daily. Full road surface restoration will occur after all the utility works are completed, in the summer of 2017.
Owners of properties who live along Newlands Drive and 210 Street who do not currently have storm sewer service connections will be provided a connection at this time. It will be the residents’ choice about whether to make modifications to his property and connect surface drainage or house perimeter drains to the new storm sewer connection. The City is providing the service to the property line to help mitigate potential flooding concerns in this area, however it is up to each individual property owner if they choose to utilize the connection at this time.
Thank you for your consideration. If you have any questions, please contact Kyle Ford at 604-514-2827 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

The City has hired a contractor to replace a culvert near 53 Avenue in the 19800 block which is part of the Baldi Creek system. Over the past few years residents have witnessed a back-up of the creek at this location during high rain fall. It was determined that the old wood culvert under the trail was undersized, so the City is putting in two new culverts to increase the conveyance capacity.
Dates: August 14 to end of September 2017
Times: 7am-5pm, Monday - Friday
Location: see map below
Noise: A generator and pump to keep the creek flowing around the work area 24 hours a day. There are noise limits we put in the contract to ensure the noise isn't disruptive to the neighbours.
Traffic: Traffic control in place on 53 Avenue. Minimal traffic impacts are anticipated.
Environmental: The contractor is working under the supervision of a qualified environmental professional with an environmental management plan which has been approved by the appropriate provincial/federal authorities. A fish capture and release ensured that the resident fish were not negatively impacted by the construction. A restoration and environmental compensation plan is in place to complete the project.
Within this project, the City will also be removing an old culvert beside the gravel parking lot and restoring the creek bed at that location. This will enhance the fish habitat for Baldi Creek - and the existing pathway will be re-routed for trail users.
Once the culvert construciton is complete, the contractor restore the pathways, stabilize slopes and then they will come back to complete the plantings - subject to weather at the end of September when the plantings have a better chance of survival.

Through a number of public open houses and stakeholder engagement with different sports groups, the City developed a Penzer Park Master plan (along with the neighbouring Buckley Park). The Master Plan includes visions for a multi-sport youth plaza, a themed playground, seating and picnicking areas, landscaping and a multi-use pathway that connects east-west from 200 Street through Penzer Park to Buckley Park to trails in the City of Surrey. To complement the existing bike skills park, the City is constructed a multi-sport court, concrete pump track, playground, and parkour circuit will provide play oppurtunities for all ages.
The City recieved funding for this park under the Western Canada Economic Diversification Funds Canada 150 Infrastructure Program to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday.
For more information on this project contact Geoff Mallory, Manager of Parks Operations at 604-514-2912 or email@example.com.
The City’s contractor Lafarge Canada Inc. will be starting construction of the 48 Avenue Road Improvement Project on Monday April 3, 2017. The project involves widening 48 Avenue on the north side from 200 Street to 203 Street to allow for bike lanes, new sidewalk from 200 Street to 201 Street, and rebuilding the road with new gravels and asphalt. The project is expected to be completed within two months subject to weather delays.
There will be traffic delays due to the construction activity and sections of single lane traffic will be required with detours. Residents of 48 Avenue from 200 Street to 201 Street are advised that street parking will be temporarily unavailable starting April 3. Please park in driveway or on side streets if necessary. Temporary parking restrictions will be required for other sections of the work as the contractor progresses toward 203 Street.
The Pleasantdale Creek culvert just west of 202 Street will be replaced in July/August (timing due to fishery requirements). This will require the road to be closed at that location for 3-4 weeks. Another notice will be issued with further details of detour on that project prior to work beginning.
Thank you for your patience with these final phases of the road and utility improvement project.
This project is funded in part by BikeBC.
