Proposed North Langley Truck Route Over the past several years annual surveys have shown that the number one concern for Fort Langley residents and businesses remains the designated Truck Route through our community. Large trucks that haul heavy loads and machinery place our residents and visitors at risk. For this reason, our community remains united to the proposal of rerouting trucks from Fort Langley to a more strategic and appropriate route. At this time Langley Township is proposing the following solution: Removal of Glover Road from 88th Avenue to the Fraser River;Removal of 96 Avenue from 216 Street to Glover Road;Removal of Mavis Avenue from Glover Road to River Road;Removal of River Road from Mavis Avenue to 240 Street;Removal of 88 Avenue east of 264 Street;Addition of Rawlison Cresent from 232 Street to 240 Street; and Addition of 240 Street from Rawlison to River Road The Township of Langley Council will soon be in the final stages of budget deliberations for this and many other projects slated for 2020. This initiative was brought before Council in 2011 and to date remains virtually unfunded. Without full funding, this project will remain stagnant and in bureaucratic limbo, continuing to be a safety risk to the community and dampen the Village's economy Mayor and Council will soon be reviewing submissions and it is very important that at this time we inform them that it is not acceptable to continue to delay funding for this important traffic project. If you are a resident or business of North Langley you can help by voicing your support for full funding in 2020 and no further delays in construction of the Truck Route Proposal. Complete your name and address by January 31, 2020 in support and we will compile the responses in a petition to deliver to Mayor and Council.
