Watermain replacement on Duncan

Work expected to begin today

  • Sep. 15, 2016 5:00 a.m.

A watermain replacement project is starting soon on Duncan Avenue in downtown Courtenay.

Construction on Duncan Avenue between 4th and 6th streets starts this week, and will continue until late-October.

This is the second of two watermain replacements in the downtown area. The first project, on Anderton Avenue between 5th and 6th streets, began in late-August.

The Duncan Avenue project will result in road closures for vehicles and temporary parking impacts. Pedestrian access will be maintained to all businesses throughout construction. Traffic control personnel will be on-site to assist all commuters, including vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians.

Work will typically take place on weekdays between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.

For further information, contact City of Courtenay Engineering at 250-334-4441 or email engineering@courtenay.ca
