Water system maintenance on Highway 19A bypass in Courtenay

Contractors working on behalf of the City of Courtenay will be performing maintenance on the water system on a section of the Highway 19A bypass just south of Comox Road.

Construction is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Sept. 3, and expected to finish by Friday, Sept. 13, weather permitting. Edgett Excavating is completing the work.

During this project, crews will be decommissioning old water system infrastructure that is no longer in use.

Traffic restrictions will be in place for the duration of construction with single-lane traffic in each direction. Southbound traffic will be directed to use the two-way, left-turn lane.

Expect delays during peak travel periods. During working hours, traffic control personnel will be on-site to direct vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists around the work area.

Motorists are asked to drive carefully around crews, for their safety and for yours. Your patience is appreciated.

For more information on this project, call City of Courtenay Public Works Services at 250-338-1525 or email publicworks@courtenay.ca
