Templeton Area Redevelopment Update

Construction Activities: Week of June 7 2021

Site work on the Templeton Area Redevelopment continues, with ongoing construction of the Templeton Corridor. Construction activity for this corridor is nearing completion; currently scheduled for end of June 2021, followed by landscaping. 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)

We are entering the final weeks of construction and working to ensure that all necessary road preparation work is complete in time for scheduled paving dates in the last week of June. To ensure we meet this important date, which will help limit dust during the summer and avoid the need to re-grade if paving is deferred, YVR’s contractor has requested to work on Saturday, June 12 and 19 (with June 26 as contingency if required). Recognizing the community benefits of earlier completion, YVR has agreed. 

Work will take place between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., which is in keeping with City of Richmond’s Noise Regulation Bylaw. Construction activities on these days will focus on fine grading and compacting for the Terrace Road extension and the new service road as well as raising storm sewer drain covers to meet the new road elevation. For notice of other activities this week, please see detailed update below. 

We appreciate everyone’s patience as we are nearing completion. As always, watering efforts continue to help keep dust levels low.

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 604-561-2836.


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

New this week:

  • Prepare and place base material for the new multi-use path along Miller Road.

Continuing this week:

  • Place base gravels on Templeton multi-use path (continues through June 7).
  • Fine grading along Terrace Street and the new YVR service road in preparation for final paving.
  • Dust monitoring and watering as necessary. 
  • Drainage monitoring.
  • 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.
