Following guidance from the province's Restart BC Plan and new health and safety regulations from WorkSafeBC, we are taking all necessary steps to protect public health and maintain the safety of our employees.
With the record breaking number of wet days in October and November, we have been unable to complete final paving across the bridge, and have postponed final completion until warm and dry weather returns in the spring.
Contractors have been preparing the site for temporary line painting and will be opening additional lanes on the bridge as soon as appropriate weather and road conditions allow.
In the meantime, restoration work in Bridgman Park is ongoing and set for completion by December 31, 2016.
We’re excited to be opening a new community recreation centre in 2017.
The new Delbrook Community Recreation Centre will be a dynamic hub for health and wellness, recreation, arts and culture, and community gatherings.
We look forward to bringing the community together to celebrate and enjoy the facility through new recreation and culture programming, activities and events for all ages, interests and abilities, provided by North Vancouver Recreation and Culture (NVRC).
This centre will be a great addition to our other facilities and services.

While work on the Capilano Water Main Project is completed, the temporary traffic measures that were put in place will remain at all intersections for now. Once traffic volumes have stabilized in the local neighbourhoods, we will review these temporary measures to determine if any modifications are needed.

In July and August 2016, the Ministerial Panel for the Trans Mountain Pipeline Expansion Project (TMX) is holding a series of meetings along the pipeline and marine corridors in Alberta and British Columbia.
At these informal sessions, the Panel will engage with local communities, stakeholders, and Indigenous groups and identify additional views that could be relevant to the Government’s final decision on the project.
We are installing separated bike lanes on a section of Lynn Valley Road, starting in October, 2016. The lanes will make travel along the road safer and more comfortable for both cyclists and motorists.
Construction will take approximately two months.
