Construction crews working on the King Edward Street overpass in Coquitlam are “making good progress,” a city official said this week.

But it’s not likely the viaduct that spans from Lougheed Highway to United Boulevard will be open ahead of the Nov. 3 deadline.

Mark Zaborniak, Coquitlam’s manager of design and construction, said much more work has to be done around the south end by United, which is being raised for the project. As well, the Highway 1 bump needs to be levelled before commuters can pass under the viaduct. In the meantime, King Edward Street remains closed to drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

For more information on the King Edward Street overpass project, call 604-927-3500 or email kingedward@coquitlam.ca. For a detour map, visit www.coquitlam.ca.
