The City is planning to install emergency vehicle pre-emption equipment at the intersection of 248 Street and Dewdney Trunk Road. This equipment will support first responders and assist with reducing response time during emergencies.
The existing electrical conduit pipes across Dewdney Trunk Road and 248 Street are in poor condition, undersized, and do not have additional conduit capacity to install the pre-emption equipment. The traffic signal infrastructure at 248 Street and Dewdney Trunk Road is also near the end of its life cycle, therefore the traffic signal system requires replacement.
The work generally consists of installation of standardized signal poles and hardware, illuminated street name signs, emergency vehicle pre-emption, traffic signal controller and electrical conduit crossings.
Fraser City Installations (1989) Ltd. has been awarded the contract and construction is underway and is anticipated to be complete by the first week of August. Dewdney Trunk Road will maintain single lane traffic in each direction while 248 Street may have intermittent single lane alternating traffic between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday during construction. Please plan for detours and thank for your patience during construction.
Should you have any questions regarding this project, please contact the City of Maple Ridge Project Manager, Maria Guerra at 604-467-7356.
