Cousins Avenue Upgrades Project



Last Updated: November 21, 2023

Project Description:

The City of Courtenay is preparing to upgrade Cousins Avenue, between Willemar Avenue and 20th Street. The project will include road improvements, repaving and replacement of underground services that have reached the end of their life or require upsizing to serve our growing community.

This upgrade project also offers an opportunity to study current traffic flow and parking challenges in the area, and investigate road and pedestrian improvements such as:

  • parking
  • sidewalks
  • trail connections
  • curbing
  • landscaping

Public Engagement

To ensure the plan ahead considers residents and businesses in the area, the City consulted with the community on design options for the corridor. Thank you to all community members who attended the open house on October 18, 2023, and completed the survey. All feedback will be incorporated into the public consultation report.

Materials from the event can be viewed here:

Public feedback will help the project team refine three design options, which will then be presented to council for consideration in early 2024.
