Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: Week of August 23, 2021

Landscaping is scheduled to start this week, while work on the Aurora Connection continues. Learn more about what to expect during construction here. This week's update follows below.

GENERAL INFORMATION (new updates this week)

Landscaping begins this week, starting with weeding and topsoil placement. Final paving is also scheduled, weather permitting, and work on the new Miller Road/Aurora Connection intersection continues. For notice of specific activities this week, please see detailed update below.

If you have questions about the project and would like to connect with our community liaison Pam by phone or in person, please email to [email protected] or call/text 604-561-2836.


Areas of focus this week (all weather dependent) include:

New work this week:

  • Weed and begin placing topsoil.
  • Install irrigation.
  • Install gate at the Templeton service road access.
  • Pave Templeton Roundabout and Aurora intersection (planned for August 25).

Continuing this week:

  • Prepare Aurora Connection for paving and landscaping.
  • Dust monitoring and watering as necessary.
  • Vehicles and equipment moving throughout the site.

Onsite equipment includes excavators, backhoe loaders, haul trucks, concrete trucks, compacting equipment, a forklift and a mobile crane. Broadband travel alarms are in use on regularly stationed equipment to reduce noise in the area. Traditional tonal alarms may still be heard on equipment and vehicles that travel to and from the site, or equipment that will be onsite for shorter durations.


Construction takes place Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily. Equipment and machinery are turned on after 7:30 a.m and most work is complete before sunset. An update will be provided if work is required outside of this timeframe.

Please note plans, activities and onsite equipment are subject to change based on evolving project needs and weather. Given the increased frequency of rain, workers may need to come to the site to monitor erosion and ensure the proper flood protections are performing adequately outside of the normal hours of operation.
