Lougheed Highway Upgrades – Underhill Avenue to Austin Road
The City of Burnaby required engineering and landscape architecture services for the design and construction of road works and improvements on Lougheed Highway. This project involved a combination of pavement rehabilitation, watermain construction, and street beautification. The City’s overall objective was improved flow of traffic, improved bicycle and pedestrian accessibility, and – most importantly – improved safety.
Binnie worked closely with the City to create a transportation route that is distinct to Burnaby, utilizing public art and landscape architecture to create a safe, welcome place for all users. During the design, we liaised with the City’s Traffic and Planning departments to suit their needs for safely conveying vehicle, cyclist, and pedestrian traffic through the corridor. We designed safer access at significant intersections, as well as transitions from sidewalks, bike lanes, and urban trails to the intersection crossing facilities. Works included upgrading roadway to the Lougheed Town Centre Standards, urban trail design, road rehabilitation and pavement marking, rain gardens to provide drainage along the SkyTrain guideway, decorative fencing, and landscape enhancements.
