Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: Week of January 18, 2021

Site work on the Templeton Area Redevelopment continues, with ongoing construction of the Templeton Corridor. Construction activities for this phase are scheduled to take place through mid-2021. Learn more about what to expect during construction here. This week's update follows below.

Thank you to all our neighbours for your support and patience as we work to complete this project safely and in a timely manner.

GENERAL INFORMATION (new updates this week)

Work to remove preload for the new Terrace Street extension is proceeding exceptionally well and is expected to complete later this week, weather permitting. Utility installations will then begin. Residents can expect to see and hear construction trucks and equipment throughout the site this week. See below for further details.

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].


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

Starting this week:

  • Remove preload lock blocks from the Terrace Street area, and store near the former sign shop.


  • Preload removal from the area that will become the Terrace Street extension.
  • Gravel placement for effective drainage in areas where the future design calls for swales to create focused drainage within YVR lands.
  • Soil grading and old utility removals, primarily in western half of the site.
  • Monitoring the temporary trench to help address flooding in the laneway behind Wellington Crescent as the City of Richmond develops a permanent drainage solution.

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. 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.
