Crews with the City of Prince George are replacing a five-metre section of damaged storm drain that destabilized part of Victoria Street last week south of Milburn Avenue.

Following the operation, crews will begin back filling at the site. Victoria Street will remain closed between McCullagh Avenue and Milburn Avenue until crews have re-paved the excavation area. The road is expected to be re-opened by the end of the week.

Victoria Street has been closed since late last week as crews worked to determine the best way to fix the damaged culvert, now believed to have been installed in the late 1960s. The operation was slowed for a few days as rain and ground water filled the excavation site and had to be removed.
