Photo gallery - David Avenue upgrade
Introduction: In 2005 construction commenced on a new street located in Coquitlam, British Columbia. The new section was designed to connect three discontinuous sections of an existing street known as David Avenue.

Portions of the new section of David Avenue bordered on existing developed single family residential properties. The proximity of the street to residential properties raised some issues involving sound impacts and loss of privacy. The project incorporated concrete fencing adjacent to the residential properties to address these issues.
Location: Coquitlam, British Columbia

March 2006

These photos were taken while construction was underway.

1 Looking east on the future David Ave. from the intersection with Pipeline Road.

Three single family dwellings can be seen to the left of the David Ave. construction site. These dwellings previously obtained access from other streets and did not require access from David Ave. Concrete fencing has been installed on both sides of the new street which will provide a sound and visual barrier from traffic.
