West Victoria Street reconstruction project remains on schedule

Paving should be completed by year’s end if weather co-operates

The West Victoria Street reconstruction project remains on schedule, with completion expected in the summer of 2020.

If weather conditions are favourable, the city expects the street, from First Avenue to Overlanders Bridge, to be paved and all lanes open to traffic by the end of the year.

The city also expects, by the end of 2019, the sidewalk on the north side of Victoria Street West to be finished and the sidewalk on the south side of the road to be completed, with the exception of those areas where BC Hydropoles are still in place.

West Victoria Street between Polar Battery and Stereo Warehouse was paved last Friday, as was the exit lane from West Victoria Street to West Seymour Street.

This week, third-party utility work continues on the north side of West Victoria Street West, near Sun Life Financial.

The concrete pouring for sidewalks also continues, moving west.

Landscaping work continues throughout the corridor, while curb and gutter work has been completed on the south side of the street.

In the spring and summer of next year, the top lift of asphalt will be installed, landscaping work will continue, BC Hydro poles will be removed and the remaining sidewalk panels will be installed.

Slow down

The city is reminding drivers of the 30 km/h speed limit through the construction zone and are asking them to obey all traffic control signs and personnel.
