Construction on 2nd and 12th Streets

July 28, 2015

Construction is set to begin on road and watermain improvements for two west Courtenay streets:

  • 2nd Street from England to Cliffe Avenue
  • 12th Street from Urquhart to Stewart Avenue

Work on the project will begin on Wednesday, July 29, and continue until September 29, 2015.

During construction, access to these streets will be limited to local traffic only. Traffic control personnel will be on site to direct vehicles, pedestrians, and cyclists through the work area.

The project will impact access to properties in the work zone at times. The contractor will make every effort to accommodate the needs of residents wherever possible, and advise residents in advance of any parking and access issues.

On 2nd Street, arrangements have been made through the Comox Valley Regional District  for BC Transit buses to be temporarily rerouted to 3rd Street during the project. The bus stop on 2nd Street, close to Cliffe Avenue, will be temporarily removed until after the project is completed.

The project contractor will require water for construction purposes as part of the project. The contractor has been advised to conserve water where possible during the current water restrictions.  The City will be working with the contractor to limit water use wherever possible.

If you have any questions about this project, please contact Ira Adams, AScT, Engineering Technologist, City of Courtenay at (250) 334-4441 extension 284, or email:
