Notice of Construction

The City of Port Moody will start construction for Phase One (Electronic Avenue to Hugh Street) of the Murray Street Bike Path Extension during late summer/early fall 2018. The start of this work will be scheduled to avoid conflicts with summertime activity around Rocky Point Park.

The design features a two-way asphalt bike path, which will follow the alignment of the existing sidewalk on the north side of Murray Street. Construction is expected to take six to eight weeks. Once the project is completed, it will be more comfortable, safer, and more enjoyable for recreational cyclists to travel along Murray Street.

Phase Two, the construction of the remaining portion of the bike path from Hugh Street to the Moody Street Overpass, is included in the City’s capital plan for 2019.

Businesses and user groups in the area will receive a letter with construction dates and hours of work closer to the start of the project.

The Murray Street Bike Path Extension was approved by Council in May 2016 as part of the City’s capital budget. You can read the report here. It is jointly funded by the City of Port Moody and TransLink. The Murray Street Bike Path Extension addresses one of Council’s strategic priorities – moving people – by creating a safe, off-street route for recreational cyclists and connecting users to Moody Centre via the Moody Street Overpass.
