2016 Capital Works Contract Commences

The City has commenced its annual Capital Works Contract.

This year we are focused on some road re-surfacing, parking lot development and water main replacement.

These projects inevitably cause inconvenience to adjacent residents and the travelling public but considerable effort is applied to minimize these impacts through restricted working hours and traffic detours. The roads will remain open during construction and motorists are advised to expect delays or attempt, when possible, to avoid the roads altogether.  Please drive carefully through construction zones, pay close attention to detour and warning signs, traffic control persons, construction workers, and equipment operating at all times. Please advise children to stay away from construction areas.

The contract for the work has been awarded to Grizzly Excavating and any questions can be directed to their office at 250 462 9736 or to the City Engineering office at 250 490 2521.
