Richco Contracting Ltd. has started construction on the 56 Avenue Road and Utility Project for the City of Langley.
Constuction will take place on 56 Ave from Glover Road to Langley Bypass between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, through the end of November 2017.

- Improved pedestrian and cycling facilities;
- Intersection improvements;
- Improved drainage features;
- Improved lighting features; and,
- Landscape features.
Renderings linked here show what the project is intended to look like once the works are complete:

The City of Langley is undertaking a major refurbishment of the 200 Street Bridge crossing the Nicomekl River. The bridge, constructed in 1976, was designed for a 50-year lifespan and, based on a recent condition assessment, requires the repairs to the concrete deck and structural repairs. We anticipate the repairs will extend the life of the bridge by a minimum of 20 years.
The $1.45 million project is being constructed by Seismic 2000 Ltd., a local construction company that has significant experience in bridge repairs and seismic upgrades. The work is scheduled to commence early August 2017 and the anticipated completion is end of November 2017, weather permitting.
Traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction which will be in place 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during the construction period. Motorists can expect delays and, where possible, should consider an alternate route. Motorists should apply caution when driving through the construction zone and obey all construction signs and traffic control personnel. During construction, cyclists will be temporarily detoured to the 203 Street corridor.

Due to the enormous sucess of the park renovation, which was completed in June 2017, City Council has approved a budget ammendment to build further ammenities in Penzer Park. The additions will include a washroom building which includes storage for recreation programing, a picnic shelter and benches. These additions are scheduled to be completed by Spring 2018.
Through a number of public open houses and stakeholder engagement with different sports groups, the City developed a Penzer Park Master plan (along with the neighbouring Buckley Park). The Master Plan included visions for a multi-sport youth plaza, a themed playground, seating and picnicking areas, landscaping and a multi-use pathway that connects east-west from 200 Street through Penzer Park to Buckley Park to trails in the City of Surrey. To complement the existing bike skills park, the City is constructed a multi-sport court, concrete pump track, playground, and parkour circuit will provide play oppurtunities for all ages.
The City recieved funding for this park under the Western Canada Economic Diversification Funds Canada 150 Infrastructure Program to celebrate Canada's 150th birthday.

The City of Langley and the Township of Langley are undertaking stormwater drainage improvements to 210 St and Newlands Drive. The improvements will divert the storm from culverts that run through backyards along 210 Street and Newlands Drive and reduce the risk of flooding on private properties.
City crew have completed the installation of a storm sewer main and watermain upgrades which include replacement of the existing watermain and connection to 47 Avenue through the walkway and Iris Mooney Park. The watermain upgrades will improve water quality and pressure in the area and reduce the risk of watermain breaks or leaks.
Owners of properties who live along Newlands Drive and 210 Street have been provided a storm sewer connection. The City has provided the service to the property line to help mitigate potential flooding concerns in this area, however it is up to each individual property owner if they choose to utilize the connection.
Thank you for your consideration. If you have any questions, please contact Kyle Ford at 604-514-2827 or email@example.com.
The City’s contractor Lafarge Canada Inc. is now substantially complete the 48 Avenue Road Improvement Project. The project inlcuded widening 48 Avenue on the north side from 200 Street to 203 Street to allow for bike lanes, new sidewalk from 200 Street to 201 Street, and rebuilding the road with new gravels and asphalt.
The Pleasantdale Creek culvert just west of 202 Street will be replaced in July/August of 2018 (timing due to fishery requirements). This will require the road to be closed at that location for 3-4 weeks. Another notice will be issued with further details of detour on that project prior to work beginning.
Thank you for your patience with these final phases of the road and utility improvement project.
This project is funded in part by BikeBC.

Project Completed October 2017.
The City has hired a contractor to replace a culvert near 53 Avenue in the 19800 block which is part of the Baldi Creek system. Over the past few years residents have witnessed a back-up of the creek at this location during high rain fall. It was determined that the old wood culvert under the trail was undersized, so the City is putting in two new culverts to increase the conveyance capacity.

City staff conduct evaluations for locations where traffic calming is requested. An "warrant analysis" is completed, based on traffic data such as speed volume , ICBC collision data, road geometry and pedestrian activity associated with schools, parks, community centers. The evaluations generated three high scoring priorities for 2017 Traffic Calming. An open house was held for each separate locaiton, with notices going out to area residents. Each design was modified based on the neighbourhood feedback, and then presented to City Council for approval. Click the links below to view the traffic calming design concepts approved by Council:
The designs have been sent to the City's paving contractor for pricing and are scheduled to be constructed through fall 2017/ winter 2018.For more information:

The City of Langley and the Township of Langley are developing a long-term plan for protecting and improving watershed health in the upper Nicomekl River Watershed (east of 196th Street).
The City will be undertaking a master plan for Brydon Park, located at the corner of 198 Street and 53 Avenue. It is a community park just north of the Nicomekl River, surrounded by a rapidly densifying residential community. In the City's Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan, it was noted that this is a partially developed site and that it should be further developed to increase the recreational and social oppurtunities for nearby residents.
Oppurtunities for input throughout the process will be posted on the City website.
