East Beach Neighbourhood Capital Works
On April 6, 2016 there was a second Neighbourhood Open House for capital works on 900 blocks of Maple, Lee, Parker and Habgood Streets, and on Pacific and Columbia Avenues. This open house provided an update for residents on the road and sewer design. Review the Open House Presentation (PDF) from the evening.
At the first Neighbourhood Open House in October 2015, the City outlined required road and sewer upgrades, reviewed the preliminary work completed to date, and discussed options to finalize the design. Review the presentation (PDF) or peruse the boards (PDF) from the evening. Residents were invited to provide feedback on the design of the road segments

Thank you for your patience during the road and sewer construction capital works project. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by construction.
Construction on the 900 blocks of Maple, Lee and Parker Streets and impacted properties on Pacific Avenue is nearing completion. The contractor is completing restoration work on driveways and boulevards impacted by construction. The final lift of asphalt is scheduled for mid to end of April, weather dependent, after all the restoration work has been addressed.
Projected construction schedule for completion June 2018.
At the March 27, 2017 Council meeting, Council approved the award of the contract for construction for the 2017 East Beach Neighbourhood Capital Works. The project will include storm and sanitary sewer replacement and associated road works.
Construction is scheduled to start in April 2017 with completion projected for November 2017. View the staff Presentation to Council (PDF) and the March 27, 2017 Council Meeting Agenda for more information on the project.
An updated road and sewer design has now been completed. This design incorporated feedback received from residents since the open house was held in April 2016. With the detailed design now complete, tendering will commence in November and construction in 2017. Some of the changes incorporated from resident feedback include:
- Corrections to drainage/flooding issues
- Narrowing roads and adding speed tables to slow traffic
- Safety improvements at intersections
