Contractors working on behalf of the City of Courtenay will be adding a second sewer line along an existing line on Riverside Lane between Standard Park and 19th Street. The project will result in increased sanitary sewer capacity to support the growing community.
Work will take place on Riverside between 14th Street (Standard Park) and 19th Street, from early August until late in the year. Expected work times are as follows:
Phase 1: 19th to 17th, 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Phase 2: 17th Street Crossing, 7 p.m. – 6 a.m.
Phase 3: 1590 Cliffe Ave., 10 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Phase 4: 1530 Cliffe Ave., 5 p.m. – 8 a.m.
Work times were developed in consultation with area businesses and the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI).
Work near the bridge will take place at night to reduce traffic disruptions. At least one lane of traffic flow will be maintained in both directions at all times.
Street parking will be restricted within the work zone when active construction is underway. The contractor will assist with regular curbside garbage and recycling pickup as required.
Traffic control personnel will be on site to direct vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists within the work area.
Schedules will be updated as work progresses.
