Vancouver Fraser Port Authority invites feedback on the proposed Holdom Overpass in Burnaby

March 1, 2021

The Vancouver Fraser Port Authority is inviting those who work and live in Burnaby to participate in the second phase of public engagement for the proposed Holdom Overpass from March 1, 2021 until April 11, 2021. The feedback from participants will help finalize the design of the overpass and public space improvements and inform the traffic and construction management plan. 

In support of the government’s direction to practice physical distancing to reduce the spread of COVID-19, this phase of engagement will take place virtually. The port authority will host two virtual public information sessions and will provide opportunities to speak to project staff over the phone. A discussion guide and questionnaire can be requested by mail.  

The information sessions are on: 

  • Sunday, March 7, 2021 – 11:00a.m. to 1:00 p.m. 
  • Thursday, March 11, 2021 – 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. 

The Holdom Overpass is part of the Burnaby Rail Corridor Improvements Project—a series of road and rail upgrades to improve the flow of trains between Burnaby and port terminals in North Vancouver. These upgrades will improve safety and community access by creating more reliable travel times and better emergency response options.  

Funding the $145 million project are the port authority, CN, and the Government of Canada (through the National Trade Corridors Fund). Upon completion, the City of Burnaby will assume ownership of the overpass.
