Road construction to last until autumn

Construction began Wednesday on road and watermain improvements for two west Courtenay streets:

• Second St. from England to Cliffe Ave., and

•12th St. from Urquhart to Stewart Ave.

Work on the project will continue until Sept. 29.

During construction, access to these streets will be limited to local traffic only. Traffic control personnel will be onsite to direct vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists through the work area.

The project will impact access to properties in the work zone at times. The contractor will make every effort to accommodate the needs of residents wherever possible, and advise residents in advance of any parking and access issues.

On Second Street, arrangements have been made through the Comox Valley Regional District for BC Transit buses to be temporarily rerouted to Third Street during the project. The bus stop on Second Street, close to Cliffe Avenue, will be temporarily removed until after the project is completed.

The City will be working with the contractor to limit water use wherever possible.

If you have any questions about this project, contact Ira Adams, AScT, Engineering Technologist, City of Courtenay at (250) 334-4441 extension 284, or email: iadams@courtenay.ca
