Crews are digging up the ditches along the south side of the Fraser Highway between 228 and 232 Streets.
The work, to install storm sewer drains, is part of a $5.9 million project to widen the highway to four lanes and re-align the 44 Avenue intersection.
Construction started March 4.
The Township’s share of the cost is $3.2 million. TransLink will pay the balance.
So far, the Township says, work is on schedule.
By the middle of June, the installation of the storm sewer drain on the south side of Fraser will be completed, and crews will switch to the north side.
The Township expects the work will be completed by September.
Planners hope to keep traffic disruptions to a minimum, maintaining two lanes of continuous traffic for the most part.
The project will also include the installation of bicycle lanes, sidewalks and street lights.
As well, 44 Avenue will be moved 60 metres east of its current location so it crosses Fraser Highway at a safer angle.
Crews will be on the job between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.
Fraser Highway carries about 25,000 vehicles a day, according to a Township estimate.
Drivers are required to slow down while work is in progress.
The maximum speed limit for the construction zone has been reduced to 50 km/h.
