projects continue into September
for the City of Prince Rupert
September has quickly become emergency repair season for the City of Prince Rupert, with city crews taking on a number of road projects around the city.
Earlier this month we noted that work was continuing in the downtown area on water line issues in the area of Ninth Street between the western end of Second and Third Avenues.
Work also was completed recently on the major overhaul that was required of the city's 2nd Avenue Bridge to the Graham/Atlin area of the city.
This week more water line repairs were required in the Frederick and 11th Avenue area, with City Crews working on a major project along Frederick, reducing the traffic flow and providing for water level reductions to homes in the immediate area as they continue to address that issue.
On Tuesday, the City announced another project is now on the horizon, with essential repairs and rehabilitation to begin on a retaining wall in front of PJ's Midway convenience store at the corner of 6th Avenue East and Ambrose Avenue.
The work which was approved in the 2016 Capital Budget has been awarded to Coast Industrial Contractors, who will launch the remediation project on September 26th, if all goes well the project is scheduled to be completed by mid-October.
You can learn more about the project from this item from the city's information department.
