Over the next few days, nighttime paving operations will be continuing at several key roads and intersections:
- George Street between First Avenue and Sixth Avenue downtown
- Third Avenue between Quebec Street and George Street
- The intersection of Massey Drive and Westwood Drive
- The intersection of O’Grady Road and Domano Boulevard
- The intersection of Fifth Avenue and Carney Street
Rainy weather earlier this week delayed the operations for a few days. These operations are being done at night starting at 7 p.m. to reduce traffic disruptions for motorists and businesses, and are expected to be completed by early next week. Preparation work, including asphalt milling, has been completed at each location.
So far this year, crews have completed nearly 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.
Sidewalk and trail rehabilitation
Starting today, crews are beginning an operation to fix cracks and bumps and provide a smoother surface on two city trails – the UNBC Connector trail (between Ospika and Tyner Boulevard) and at Cpl. Darren Fitzpatrick Bravery Park. Crews also recently refreshed the gravel trail providing access to Connaught Hill Park off of Queensway.
Crews are continuing their work 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 be completed by next week.
