Upcoming Paving on 5th Street

October 11, 2018

Upgrades to 5th Street are progressing each day as the Complete Street Pilot Project heads into the final phase. The final layer of asphalt is scheduled to be placed this Friday and Saturday.  Please be aware that there will be a temporary closure of the 5th Street and Fitzgerald Avenue intersection while the paving is being completed as well as single lane alternating traffic along the section of 5th Street between McPhee Avenue and Menzies Avenue.

Once the asphalt has been installed, the street may look ready for reopening; however there will still be construction activity underway in the area. For the protection of both work crews and the public, the road will be reopened to all modes of transportation when it has been deemed safe to do so for all concerned.

The City of Courtenay thanks the public for their patience during the construction of this important infrastructure project.
