As a part of the City of Coquitlam’s Capital Construction program, Coast Meridian Road between David Avenue and Harper Road will be expanded to a four-lane street. The project will include a sidewalk along the west side of the street, and a multi-use pathway along the east side. It will also include vehicle turn lanes onto some of the busier streets.
These upgrades will improve safety, enhance bike and pedestrian connections and make Coast Meridian Road look great!
The project has already begun, and will extend into 2015. Construction is weather dependent and may be delayed without notice. Traffic flow and parking will be impacted during the construction, and traffic delays are to be expected. However, the City of Coquitlam is working with the contractor to ensure that every effort is made to minimize the disruption as much as possible during construction.
