The City of Port Moody’s Murray Street Upgrades Project will improve driver, cyclist, and pedestrian safety while also making it more comfortable and convenient for people to use sustainable methods of transportation. Construction work begins in September 2019 and is expected to be completed in May 2020.

Impact to you

  • Traffic – There will be disruptions to traffic along Murray Street, including times when traffic may be reduced to a single lane in alternating directions. The City will work to maintain two-way traffic during rush hour.
  • Parking - There will be restrictions to parking along Murray Street in areas around construction.
  • Access to businesses and Rocky Point Park – Access to businesses and Rocky Point Park will be maintained. 
  • Water service - 72 hours advance notice will be provided when properties will be impacted by the transfer to the new watermain.
