City to begin work on 10th Street & Hobson Avenue intersection upgrades

  • Oct. 22, 2017 7:30 a.m.

The City of Courtenay will be upgrading the intersection of 10th Street East and Hobson Avenue. The upgrades will include:

• The addition of a crosswalk across the north and south leg of Hobson;

• New letdowns for either side of the new crosswalks;

• Replacement of the existing fire hydrant;

• Relocation of the existing storm catch basins.

The upgrades to the intersection will increase safety for students who use this route to access local schools. It will also formalize the crossing of Hobson Avenue, and allow for safer park access for residents.

The project is scheduled to begin on Monday, Oct. 23, with planned completion by Thursday, Nov. 2. Work will take place between 7:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. between the scheduled dates. However, the work is weather dependent and construction dates may vary.

Vehicle traffic and on-street parking will be restricted within the work area.

Traffic control personnel will be onsite to direct vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists within the work area.
