Fraser River Crossing




Fraser River CrossingFraser River Crossing<div class="ExternalClass47BE1D44E19743A086CE8D5BA1FC6ABC"><p>Diverting flows from Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows to the Northwest Langley Wastewater Treatment Plant requires two new sewer pipes. Two pipes will extend from the new pump station in Maple Ridge, under the Fraser River, to the treatment plant. The pipe alignments will run parallel to the Golden Ears Bridge. The crossing is being built using a construction method called horizontal directional drilling, which involves drilling a tunnel under the riverbed to reduce impacts to the river. </p><p>Work has been planned in consultation with Fraser River users and permitting agencies to minimize impacts to river activity and the river itself. Metro Vancouver is committed to minimizing the impacts of this project on the marine environment and surrounding habitat. ​<span id="ms-rterangecursor-start"></span><span id="ms-rterangecursor-end"></span><br></p></div>Maple Ridge and Langley
