Vancouver’s Unique Sewer and Landscaping Detail

Vancouver, your city is busy working on several infrastructure enhancements that will likely continue construction through next year. Coordinated work continues along Burrard St. from Davie 16th Ave., in an effort to rehabilitate aging water, sewer and road infrastructure. This will promote enhanced safety for all travelers at the Burrard-Pacific intersection, and provide needed structural rehabilitation for Burrard Bridge. The full spectrum of the project includes replacing the water main, installing a separated sewer main, and repaving the road surface on Burrard Street from Davie to Beach, as well as, Burrard Street from Cornwall Avenue to 17th Avenue. During construction, motorist will have one travel lane, in each direction, available along Burrard Street and Pacific Street. Some full road closures will be needed on weekends to allow for major excavation, installation of a deep sewer, and final paving.

Interesting fact: In Canada, there are 4 overarching biomes: tundra, desert, grassland, and forest. Within BC, there are subcategories: semi-arid desert, temperate rainforest, boreal forest (taiga), and alpine tundra. A biome is a large geographical area of distinctive plant and animal groups, which are adapted to that particular environment. For further discussion on this engaging topic, The Grind and Gallery in Vancouver is currently exhibiting a display on Biomes and the exploration and celebration of the diversity of the landscapes of BC; showing the character of land, sea, and sky.
