53 Street and 28 Avenue Roadway and Utility Improvements


The 53 Street and 28 Avenue Roadway and Utility Improvements project is part of Delta's Neighbourhood Road Improvements Plan, which was introduced in 2012 to address aging roads and sidewalks in our community.

  • Roadway widening (on the west side of 53 Street) to provide dedicated southbound right and left turn lanes;

  • Ditch infill along the west side of 53 Street including new storm sewer installation;

  • New drainage swale with lawnbasins along the west side of 53 Street for drainage;

  • Cycle lane improvements;

  • Bus stop improvements;

  • Delta watermain replacement;

  • Metro Vancouver watermain replacement; and,

  • Roadway rehabilitation.

A preliminary plan of proposed improvements is attached for information.
