Pipeline work starting soon in Chilliwack could cause traffic delays

Enbridge to replace one km of natural gas pipeline in Chilliwack this summer on private ag lands

Replacement of a small section of natural gas pipeline will be underway in Chilliwack starting next week.

Enbridge crews will be replacing approximately one kilometre of 30-inch and 36-inch natural gas pipeline on private agricultural lands on the south side between South Sumas and Evans Road.

“This is part of the process of maintaining a safe and reliable natural gas pipeline system,” said Jesse Semko, spokesperson for Enbridge in a release.

The work could cause some traffic disruption.

Chilliwack residents can expect increased traffic volume around the site, which will include large, slow-moving vehicles resulting in potential delays.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”

Work was scheduled to start by mid-June and be completed in August.

Enbridge officials will be implementing a traffic management plan for the project. This may include signage, pilot trucks and other disruption minimizers during the replacement work.
