Road Closure on Cliffe Ave. at 2nd Street this Wednesday

July 31, 2015

Courtenay’s Cliffe Avenue at 2nd Street will be closed on Wednesday, August 5 for a municipal utilities project. The closure between 7:00 am & 5:00 pm is to facilitate the replacement of a sanitary sewer.

Detour routes will be in place and traffic control personnel will direct vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists within the work area.  Northbound traffic will be routed through 3rd Street to Riverside Lane and onto 1st Street, and southbound traffic onto 1st Street to Duncan Avenue.

The detour route will require temporary removal of the concrete barriers on 1st Street at Cliffe Avenue to allow traffic to proceed westbound to Duncan Avenue. The barriers will be replaced immediately after Cliffe Avenue is re-opened to through traffic.

2 nd Street between Duncan & Cliffe Avenue, and Cliffe Avenue between 1st & 3rd Streets will be restricted to local traffic only.

The City is delivering notices about the project to area residents and businesses. The City thanks area residents and commuters for their understanding and patience during the road work.

If you have any questions about the above road closure please contact the City’s Engineering Department at (250) 334-4441.
