Cultus Lake/Chilliwack – MARCH 3 UPDATE – The recent snow and rain have pushed back construction on a Fortis BC Gas Main Pipe Relocation alongside the Vedder Bridge construction. Starting March 13, work that was supposed to have started on February 28, will keep crews busy on weekdays from 8 AM to 4PM. It’s not certain how long traffic disruptions to and from Cultus Lake will last.
FEBRUARY 22 ORIGINAL STORY – Traffic may be impacted starting February 28 while FortisBC moves and upgrades a natural gas main located beneath the Vedder Bridge. The work is required as part of the City of Chilliwack’s Vedder Bridge Replacement project.
