Project construction budget is $4.08M, expected start is August 2019 and expected completion is Spring 2020. Asphalt resurfacing including concrete curb and sidewalk repairs on selected streets.
The asphalt surface of the noted streets has deteriorated with patches, multiple cracks and some rutting. The primary purpose of the asphalt road resurfacing is to prevent roads from deteriorating to the point that they would require more extensive and costly rehabilitation and/or reconstruction.
There will be no more local road
closures implemented for this project in 2019. In Spring 2020, City staff and
the Contractor will review and identify any local road closures required for
the 2020 resurfacing work to be done under this project.
All closed sections of road will still be open to local traffic and emergency vehicles. Motorists who are
not accessing the homes and businesses within the road closure limits though need to follow the detours provided are
not permitted to enter the local road closure areas.
To avoid conflict with the proposed traffic detour for the
Dig Downtown Project, the resurfacing work on the following downtown road segments has been postponed to Spring 2020:
The Contractor will set up signage prior to commencing the work on each road section to provide advanced notifiication of the upcoming construction actvitiies.
