City advises for motorists to avoid George Hills Way today, as paving project gets underway

Traffic will be snarled through the day/week today as Paving crews
work the George Hills Road area through the week. The City has
advised that motorists use alternative routes to avoid the paving project

Today is Pave Day for George Hills Way, as the city's ongoing summer of road rehabilitation moves forward, with a significant stretch of the east-west roadway linking Cow Bay with the east side of the city to be paved today.

In an advisory for the public this morning delivered through a range of information options, the City of Prince Rupert advised motorists to avoid the area as paving crews were to work the area from the Cow Bay Bridge to the Canadian Fish Plant through the day.

 Paving crews are working in the George Hills Road area through the week.
While one lane will be open for traffic, delays are expected as traffic controllers provide for alternate traffic openings.

In addition to the traffic restrictions, there is no Parking allowed along the stretch of the roadway today and overnight. It is hoped that the George Hills Way and Drydock Road paving project will be wrapped up by the end of this week, weather permitting.
