City crews are approaching the completion of all scheduled paving projects for the 2017 season.

Last week, crews completed operations on six of the last scheduled projects of the year:

  • Third Avenue between Lower Patricia and Toronto Street. Lane kilometres: 0.730. Estimated cost: $135,000
  • Fourth Avenue between Queensway and London Street. Lane kilometres: 1.320. Estimated cost: $225,000
  • Ottawa Street between Second Avenue and Fourth Avenue. Lane kilometres: 0.350. Estimated cost:                $32,000
  • Windsor Street between Second Avenue and Third Avenue. Lane kilometres: 0.200. Estimated cost: $30,000
  • London Street between Second Avenue and Fourth Avenue. Lane kilometres: 0.350. Estimated cost: $25,000
  • Toronto Street between Second Avenue and Fourth Avenue. Lane kilometres: 0.350. Estimated cost: $31,000

The 2017 Road Rehabilitation Program is now nearly complete with only paving projects relating to the Killarny Local Area Service Agreement and a utility project on Vellencher Road still to come. Those operations are expected to be completed by the end of October.

During budget deliberations earlier this year, Council approved a budget of $5 million for road rehabilitation projects, $600,000 for sidewalk rehabilitation, and $400,000 for new sidewalk construction projects.

Motorists are advised to look for alternate routes whenever possible and to drive with caution around road crews.
