Langley City, BC – Following consultation with residents and businesses this summer on what they most like and most want changed about the Fraser Highway One-Way, Langley City is now seeking input on potential designs for the new One-Way, with intent to select and proceed with detailed design of a preferred option.

Consultation will take place from September 20 to October 4, including two open houses at Timms Community Centre/City Hall and an online survey.

The planned replacement of aging underground utilities on the One-Way has created an opportunity to redesign the street, creating a more welcoming area for businesses and visitors along this treasured part of Langley City. Design options respond to key public interests for trees and greenery, vibrant public spaces such as patios and gathering areas and improved pedestrian experience, with safer crosswalks, sidewalks and lighting.

“Every year, we see more people moving to Langley to enjoy everything our community has to offer. Initiatives such as the Fraser Highway One-Way Improvement Project help us to plan together for the future and give everyone a say in what our downtown should look like,” says Mayor Schaffer. “We are excited to provide designs that reflect what people said they wanted, and to hear which design people prefer and why.”
