Edmonds road relief on way this summer

The second and final phase of a road improvement project on Edmonds Street took a step closer recently with approval of $2.7 million in funding by Burnaby council.

The first phase of the project, on Edmonds from Kingsway to Canada Way, included the replacement of water and sewer lines which was completed in late 2011.

The second phase will include final drainage and road improvements to the street which is currently such a rough ride it has been the subject of complaints to city councillors.

According to city hall, the project includes improving the road surface of Humphries Avenue to Elwell Street and a section of Vista Crescent. Sidewalks on Humphries will be improved and new bus shelters will be installed on Edmonds in front of the new Edmonds Pool and Community Centre.

The intersection of Edmonds and Humphries will see a new traffic signal and a new pedestrian crossing signal will be added at Edmonds and Linden Street.

All the work will be completed by the end of the year.
