Chilliwack – Build it and they will come. They will also appreciate a little less traffic grid lock. On Tuesday, Chilliwack City Council accepted the proposal for the Vedder / Promontory / Prest Design-Build Project from the lead proponent, Eurovia BC Inc.
The total cost of the multi layered project comes to $15,251,227.14, and should be ready by 2021.
