The City of Prince George is starting eight new paving projects this week on routes throughout the city. When completed, the City will have nearly 12 lane-kilometres of newly paved road, enough to pave one lane from the middle of College Heights, past UNBC, and down to Moore’s Meadow Nature Park, which is about an 11 minute drive. The week’s largest project is North Kelly Road from Ferguson Lake Road to Blazer Road.
The projects currently or about to be underway:
- Foothills Boulevard from Chief Lake Road to 890 meters south (1.780 lane kilometres)
- North Kelly Road between Ferguson Lake Road and Blazer Road (2.420 lane kilometres)
- Hammond Avenue from Quinn Street to Kelly Street (1.150 lane kilometres)
- Kelly Street from 5th Ave to the north end (1.240 lane kilometres)
- Nicholson Street from 2nd Avenue to Ogilvie Street (1.100 lane kilometres)
- Ogilvie Street from 5th Avenue to Dezell Drive (1.610 lane kilometres)
- Quinn Street from 5th Avenue to Dezell Drive (1.750 lane kilometres)
- Ruggles Street from 5th Avenue to 1st Avenue (0.830 lane kilometres)
All of these projects are anticipated to be completed by the end of the week depending upon the weather. For a complete list of road and sidewalk rehabilitation projects for 2018 and their exact locations, please visit the City website.
Motorists are advised to look for alternate routes whenever possible and to drive with caution around road crews.
