The post office was constructed in this city in 1911. Many small communities were established in this city. The Inter-Urban railroad was constructed in 1910. It was a significant growth of this city. The early pioneers settled in the semi circle of the east of the city Langley. This place was developed as a business and service centre. Due to huge demand and continuous growth, the city of Langley became a separate municipality on March 15, 1955.

Streets run from North to South and Avenues run from East to West. We found a major road after 8th interval. It creates a superblock. O Avenue starts from the US border. Avenue numbers are increased after 8 miles. Some roads break this system. Say an example of Fraser HighwayGlover Road and Old Yale Road. These roads were constructed before the grid system was introduced in this city.
