Harris Road underpass in jeopardy

On April 18th, the City of Pitt Meadows council voted unanimously not to be a funding partner in the Harris Road underpass project. Construction costs for the new underpass to deal with persistent train delays on Harris Road, the city’s main north-south route, have more than tripled from $63 million to $195 million and the City was asked to pay a quarter of the construction costs. Without the underpass, the city is looking at significantly longer wait times on Harris Road, especially as CP Rail continues to move forward with its new logistics park. The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority said that without that money, the underpass wouldn’t be built in light of the higher cost.
