Surrey city council approved on Monday night a more than $3.6 million contract to install roughly 770 metres of District Energy steel pipe along King George Boulevard near Fraser Highway.

Surrey’s engineering department recommended that council award Complete Utility Contractors Ltd. $3,622,993.50 to do the work, with a spending limit set at $3,985,000.

The contract work is expected to begin in July and be completed by next January, with construction permitted between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

“To provide a balance between traffic disruptions and disruptions to residents and businesses, work at major intersections will be completed during the evening and/or in the summer months when traffic volumes are generally lower,” Scott Neuman, Surrey’s general manager of engineering, told council in a corporate report.
