Communities included in the Fraser Valley are:

  • Popkum
  • Chilliwack
  • Abbotsford
  • Langley
  • Approximately 70 km of pipeline construction
  • 84 trenchless crossings
  • 12 special-project areas requiring modified techniques to accommodate unique land uses or environmental considerations

Spread 6 Pipeline Construction

Pipeline construction in this region extends from Bridal Veil Falls to Langley. Work consists primarily of conventional pipeline construction techniques, with trenchless techniques being used for select watercourse and road crossings as well as some high-density residential areas.

Sumas Terminal Construction

Kiewit Ledcor Trans Mountain Partnership (KLTP) is doing the work at Trans Mountain’s Sumas Terminal, which includes the addition of one new storage tank. The expansion will bring the total number of tanks to seven and a total storage capacity of 890,000 barrels.

KLTP was formed specifically to carry out this work and has a proven track record in finding solutions to minimize impacts of construction activities.
