Road & Utility Improvements Projects

The City of Coquitlam works continuously to maintain, upgrade and expand the roads and infrastructure. There may also be projects underway in Coquitlam that are the responsibility of another entity.

Traffic Hot Spots

Please use alternate routes to avoid delays during construction and note that "Anticipated Start Dates" are ​subject to ​change. Information will be updated on an ongoing basis as soon as it is available. You can follow the City on our social media channels where we update regularly with info on our Traffic Hot Spots.

Remember to please watch for work crews and equipment and obey all traffic control personnel and signs, including construction speed limits.

Coquitlam work near Mariner Way

There will be a small lane closure on Como Lake Avenue west of the Mariner Way intersection next week, as our crews finish work on our new line ahead of it going into operation.

At least one westbound and one eastbound lane will be kept open during this work, which will see our crews examine the new gas line following recent testing. The closure is expected to take up to two weeks. See the FortisBC website for more information on gas line inspection and testing processes.

Barnet/Lougheed Highways - Coquitlam Central Station to Westwood Street 
TransLink is working to improve its bus service in Coquitlam with the construction of the Lougheed B-Line. The Lougheed B-Line will bring rapid-bus service to this important corridor for the first time, connecting the communities of Maple Ridge, Pitt Meadows, Port Coquitlam and Coquitlam with fast and reliable bus service that rivals the speed of SkyTrain. Construction will take place along Lougheed Highway (and Barnet Highway), between Johnson and Westwood streets, with a majority of the work taking place at Coquitlam Central Station.

Construction is scheduled to begin the first week of July and will take approximately three months (weather dependent). Work will be completed in phases, with some work taking place during daytime hours (7 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and some work taking place during the overnight hours (7 p.m. to 4 a.m.). Every effort will be made to minimize impacts during construction.
