Impact of Natural Gas Pipeline Rupture on Municipal Capital Projects

Statement: Impact-of-Natural-Gas-Pipeline-Rupture

Johnston Road Paving Rescheduled to Monday, October 15, 2015

Due to the Enbridge natural gas pipeline rupture, some of FortisBC’s industrial customers had their natural gas service curtailed. On Thursday, October 11, some industrial customers began being brought back onto the system with a reduced amount of natural gas.

As FortisBC continues lifting the curtailment of their industrial customers, especially asphalt and concrete producers, the City has had to reschedule the paving of Johnston Road to occur on Monday, October 15, 2018. This means Johnston Road will not be opened until at least 7:00 p.m. on October 15.

The City will be on a conference call with FortisBC this afternoon to get the most up-to-date information on FortisBC’s response to the Enbridge natural gas transmission pipeline rupture and their next steps.

If there are additional disruptions to City related projects due to this incident, we will provide an update.

To keep up to date with the latest information from FortisBC, please go to their Service Alert page:

Progress Being Made on Johnston Road: Tree Planting    

Despite this unexpected and unfortunate event, progress continues to be made on the Johnston Road Revitalization project this week.

New trees have arrived and will be planted in the silva cells, which are modular pavement systems that hold lightly compacted soil that support healthy tree growth. These cells will also allow trees to spread their roots without disrupting sidewalk safety.
