Three major roads to be closed at night, starting on Monday

The roads are being shut down to allow work on the 196 Street overpass and connector route to proceed

Three roads will be closed at night for work on the final stages of the 196 Street overpass project on the Langley Bypass.

Plans call for evening shutdowns of Fraser Highway at Willowbrook Drive, Willowbrook Drive at 196 Street and 64 Avenue at 196 Street until the end of April.

An unsigned March 10 memo from the Township of Langley engineering department to council said the proposed work would take place between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. from March 24 until April 30, including weekends.

The 196 Street crossing is one of three overpasses in Langley known as the “combo” project designed to get increasing numbers of vehicles over heavier train traffic.

The other two are the 192 Street overpass and an east-west connector on 54 Avenue.

All are scheduled to open later this year. The 196 overpass is all but complete, but the other two require more work.
