City of Vancouver to repave Knight Street from 41 Avenue to 57 Avenue

STARTING July 9, City of Vancouver engineering crews will begin road, curb, sidewalk and gutter upgrades on Knight Street between 41st and 57th avenues.

The work begins this weekend with the installation of a new bus pad and curb on 41 Avenue at Knight Street. On Monday, crews will start pre-paving work on the southbound lanes of Knight Street starting at 41 Avenue working generally in six-block sections at a time. Two lanes of traffic will be retained in each direction while the work is underway.

Once work on the southbound lanes is complete to 57 Avenue, crews will switch to work on the northbound lanes. Work is expected to be completed by September 30.

Access to all businesses will be maintained while the work is being completed.

Commuters should expect delays and plan ahead.

The City notes that Knight Street is a key arterial and the main truck route into and out of Vancouver. More than 5,000 vehicles an hour pass through the intersection of 41 Avenue and Knight Street during the morning and evening commutes.

Regular road maintenance is required on Knight Street to ensure it remains at a high standard due to the heavy truck traffic.
