Four new road rehabilitation projects are starting this week. Crews will be doing preparation work starting later this week on George Street between First Avenue and Sixth Avenue downtown with repaving to occur next week. Milling operations will also start this week on Third Avenue between Quebec Street and George Street. This work will be done at night starting at 7 p.m. to minimize disruption to businesses and motorists.
Two road rehabilitation operations are also occurring this week at high-traffic intersections and is being done at night to minimize disruption:
- The intersection of Massey Drive and Westwood Drive.
- The intersection of O’Grady Road and Domano Boulevard.
All of the projects are expected to be completed by the week of June 24, but this timeline is subject to weather conditions.
So far this year, crews have completed near half of the 36 road projects scheduled in 2020. The BC Government’s project to rehabilitate Highway 16 from Victoria Street and 20th Avenue all the way to the Old Cariboo Highway is also still progressing through downtown Prince George.
Work has also started to install new curbs and gutters along Patricia Boulevard prior to the repaving of the sidewalk along Patricia. Construction has started on a new sidewalk along Queensway from Connaught Drive to Lower Patricia Boulevard. This work will include the relocation of streetlights and irrigation and is expected to take about two weeks to complete.
