Roadwork on the North Shore and events happening this weekend

You have probably noticed the amount of roadwork and construction that is taking place on the North Shore. It can be so infuriating to be stuck in traffic in a commute that might only take a few minutes otherwise. To address the inconvenience, the City of North Vancouver has created an interactive roadwork map, featuring detours, delays and disruptions. Part of it has to do with the RapidBus project construction. Still, most of it is maintenance work (paving, sewer upgrading, among others) that has to be done for residents to continue enjoying the quality of life the North Shore has to offer.

The following is a list of projects around the City of North Vancouver that are currently taking place.
