City designing improvements on Maple Ridge route

Widening Abernethy Way between 230th and 232nd Streets

Maple Ridge City Hall is taking public feedback about improvements to one of the city’s busiest east-west roadways.

The city is currently in the design phase for road improvements to Abernethy Way, from 230 Street to 232 Street, widening the arterial route to four lanes. It will also build a new bike lane/multi-use pathway on the west side of 232 Street from Abernethy Way to Dewdney Trunk Road.

The public is being invited to a virtual information session where city staff and the design consultants will present the design for the project and will be available to answer questions.

The session will be held on March 24 at 6 p.m., and those interested can access the project’s webpage at mapleridge.ca. The city will post the Zoom link on the webpage on the day of the presentation.

The virtual information session will begin with a presentation. The presentation portion of the information session will be recorded. The discussion portion of the information session will not be recorded.

In 2020, city council approved a plan to extend Abernethy Way east from 232nd to 240th street, with construction planned for 2025. Then it will be further extended from 240th to 256th, based on population projections, over a 20-plus year time frame.
