City Crews tackle McBride Street water main repairs, reducing traffic lanes for motorists

Work continues on a water main break along McBride Street

Construction season in Prince Rupert is making the prospect of taking to the roads somewhat of a challenge these days, whether it be the near off road experience of the various areas being prepared for paving, or the latest work by the City's Public works crews on the city's aging infrastructure.

Work began yesterday on a water main issue on McBride Street at Seventh Avenue East, with what is shaping up to be a significant excavation process required to access the break in the water line.

City Work crews have had to reduce the travel lanes on McBride to address the issue and with that comes the need for motorists to reduce their speed and obey the instructions of the flag personnel that are directing traffic from both ends of the construction site.

The City outlined the nature of the work required with both a notice on the city website and through their social media options and the city's mobile app.
