One of the biggest undertakings in the Burrard Bridge project was one we never really saw. And it had nothing to do with bicycles.
It was mostly below grade or underground.
The replacement of water and sewerage lines is a big deal. And for many months whole lanes of Burrard Street south of Davie were taken up to do it.
We take for granted, thank god, this water system that is essential for our existence as a city. But there has been a long-term commitment by every council to maintenance and replacement of those pipes – and this project reflects that.
