McBride Street work heads towards the home stretch

Work is nearing completion on the two month water main replacement
project on Prince Rupert's McBride Street

The two month wait for the return of four lane traffic on McBride is almost over, with work crews from Adventure Paving taking to the three block stretch of one of the city's main thoroughfares today to lay down some  blacktop.

The project to repair some of the city's aging infrastructure, began in late May with City work crews replacing a two block segment of the water main along Seventh and Eight Avenues.

The City of Prince Rupert first posted their advisory on the work ahead on the 30th of May.

The nature of the work that was required for the project expanded the timeline pretty quickly after that first hopeful indication, with two months passing travellers by before we reached the paving stage today.

A look at some of our previous notes on the work can be found below:
