Province's Prince Rupert paving project looks to May 1st start

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
The days of falling into potholes and dealing with the rough surface of the major arterial roads in Prince Rupert are soon to be numbered, with the Provincial Ministry of Transportation set to launch the large scale road paving project as of May 1st.

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.

The paving of McBride Street, 2nd Avenue West
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

You can review some of the background to the summer's biggest infrastructure project below:
