No fewer than nine road repaving operations will be getting under way this week as city and contracted crews begin major paving operations for the 2021 season. The largest operation started Monday with paving crews beginning preparatory work, including milling, on Foothills Boulevard between North Nechako Road and the Fortis substation 1.4 km to the north of the intersection. Repaving on that project is expected to start immediately afterward depending upon the weather.
Preparatory and milling operations are starting this week on eight other projects:
- Fifth Avenue from Ospika Boulevard to Voyageur Avenue
- Fifth Avenue from Douglas Street to Johnson Street
- Douglas Street from Fifth Avenue to Second Avenue
- Ewert Street from Fifth Avenue to Second Avenue
- Freeman Street from Fifth Avenue to Second Avenue
- Renwick Crescent from Melville Avenue to Winnipeg Street
- Cameron Street Roundabout
- River Road from Cameron Street Overpass to Cameron Street Bridge
Repaving is expected to begin on these operations starting on Wednesday and continue through the end of next week depending upon the weather. A sidewalk operation on Highland Drive in the Hart is also wrapping up this week, with additional sidewalk projects scheduled to begin later this month. Line painting operations are expected to be completed by the end of June depending upon the weather.
This year, the City of Prince George will be resurfacing about 43 lane-kilometres of road. The City is also rehabilitating about 1.3 kilometres of sidewalk. In total, there will be 38 road-resurfacing projects, and five sidewalk projects in the 2021 paving season.
The year’s largest projects will be a 4.3 lane-kilometre stretch of Northwood Pulpmill Road, while the largest sidewalk operation will be about 365 metres along 20th Avenue from Queensway to Maple Street.
