|Highway signs recently put in place on Park Avenue and McBride Street|
outline the timeline ahead for the major repaving project in Prince Rupert this summer
Highway signs were recently installed at the Western and Eastern approaches to the city, advising of the upcoming schedule for road remediation, with May 1st indicated as the first day of work for Peter's Brothers Construction of the Okanagan.
In preparation for the work ahead, crews have been rebuilding curbs along stretches of McBride for much of the last month.

and Park Avenue is set for a May 1st start
Should all go according to plan, the Highway's portion of the project will come to an end on June 9th, at which time the same contractor will then turn its attention to the City of Prince Rupert's Third Avenue repaving project
