Comox Road Sewer Project

Start: June 2024

End: Winter 2024

Last Updated: May 22, 2024

Project Description:

The City is launching a sewer project that will protect the Courtenay River and estuary by decommissioning an aging sewer pipe that crosses the Courtenay River. To do so, sewage from properties in the areas around Lewis and Simms Parks will be rerouted to a new pipe along Comox Road to the Courtenay Pump Station.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • The work will occur on Comox Road (between Hwy 19A bypass and Old Island Hwy/5th Street), and around Lewis and Simms Parks and the Lewis Centre.
  • Construction will start in June 2024 and is expected to be completed in November 2024.
  • Roadway work will be completed in summer, with Old Island Hwy and Hwy 19A bypass construction scheduled for nights.
  • Work in/around the parks will begin in fall, after summer programming is completed.
  • Single lane alternating traffic will be in place for an extended period on Comox Road. Start date TBD.
  • Edgett Excavating Ltd. is the project contractor.
