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 7.5 lane kilometres of newly paved road. Incidentally, 7.5 kilometres is roughly the distance a person would have to walk or run to do 19 laps on the re-surfaced track at the newly redeveloped Masich Place Stadium. The week’s largest project is a nearly two-kilometre stretch of road on Foothills Boulevard from Vellencher Road to Highland Drive.
The projects currently or about to be underway:
- Bird Street from Queensway to the end of the street (0.30 lane kilometers)
- Foothills Boulevard from Vellencher Road to Highland Drive (1.760 lane kilometres)
- Hamilton Avenue from Queensway to Hazelton Street (Length – 0.410 lane kilometres)
- Highway 16 Frontage from Westgate Road to Marleau Road and Marleau Road to Lalonde Road (1.78 lane kilometres)
- LaSalle Avenue from Queensway to the end of Hazelton Street (0.890 lane kilometres)
- Quadrant Crescent from Queensway to the end of Inlander Street (1.100 lane kilometres)
- Rose Lane from Quadrant Crescent to Regents Crescent (0.390 lane kilometres)
- Royal Crescent from Queensway to Regents Crescent (0.790 lane kilometres)
All of the above operations are scheduled for completion by September 19. Motorists are advised to look for alternate routes whenever possible and to drive with caution around road crews.
