NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. — The last 80 feet of the Dollarton Hwy. realignment can take place, now that a controversial agreement has been reached concerning the location of a service station.
The District of North Vancouver, Imperial Oil and Nexen have been unable to agree on where a service station will be located, due to contaminated soil in certain areas surrounding the proposed site. Talks have been ongoing since 1995, and the realignment project aimed at rerouting truck traffic, was put on hold.
With the recent agreement, construction can resume, meaning that truck traffic will soon have a new option that will take it south of the Maplewood residential and commercial centers.
“The Maplewood community support has been long-standing for a proposal to move truck and commuter traffic out of the residential and commercial areas of Maplewood and onto a realigned Dollarton Highway which would also serve a new business park development,” says Mayor, Don Bell.
Work on the final section of highway is slated to begin in April.
