Feedback sought on 128th

Four-lane construction set to begin as open house set for January 28

  • Jan. 21, 2015 2:00 p.m.

Construction is finally ready to start this spring on four-laning 128th Avenue from 210th to 224th streets to make the commute home easier for eastern suburban residents.

But before a shovel hits the ground though, the City of Maple Ridge wants to hear what you think of the road-widening project.

An open house takes place Wednesday, Jan. 28 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in municipal hall.

People can view the preliminary design and provide feedback for the widening of 128 Avenue, from 210th Street to 224th Street. Design boards will be on display and city staff, as well as the consultant, will be available to answer questions.

Cyclists and pedestrians will have their own pathway on the new road.

A permanent, paved multi-use path will be constructed on the north side of 128th Avenue from 210th Street to the existing paved multi-use path at 224th Street.

Phase 1 of the project, widening the road from 210th to 216th street, will start this spring as soon as Metro Vancouver completes its new water pipeline which runs beneath the road supplying neighbourhoods in eastern Maple Ridge.

Phase 2 is from 216th Street to east of 224th Street, but will depend on the 2016-2017 budget.
