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.
