Sewer line construction will be a four-phase project.

Second sewer line to be added in Courtenay

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.

This project was made possible in co-operation with MoTI. The construction contract was awarded through an open public competitive tendering process. Wacor Holdings Ltd was the successful bidder.

All regulatory permitting has been obtained, to support the work. As work falls within a known archeologically sensitive area, appropriate permitting has been obtained, and the site will be actively monitored during construction.

A separate similar project nearby on 20th Street is expected to start at a later date, with a different contractor.

Schedules will be updated as work progresses.
