Road Work on 5th Street & Duncan Ave

September 27, 2016

The watermain replacement project continues on Duncan Avenue in downtown Courtenay. On Wednesday September 28th, work in the Duncan Avenue and 5th Street intersection will begin at 5:30 am and last until about 9:00 am. This early start time is to minimize traffic disruptions through the day and is for one day only.

During this work, Duncan Avenue will be closed on either side of 5th Street and 5th Street will be reduced to single lane alternating traffic. Traffic control personnel will be on-site to assist all commuters, including vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians.

Construction on Duncan Avenue will continue until late October.
