Plans for road relief for Port Edward residents in motion with RFP for Road Reconstruction tender

The District of Port Edward has launched a major road infrastructure initiative this week, posting a call for Tenders for a Road Reconstruction project to the BC Bid website.

The tender documents, posted Wednesday to the provincial site, outline the scope of the project to reconstruct Evergreen Drive and Wildwood Avenue

The supply and installation of all labour, materials, equipment, and incidentals required for the road reconstruction, including excavation, installation of sub-base and base gravels, sanitary sewer replacement, drainage installation, preparation for road and sidewalk paving, concrete curbs and other related works on Evergreen between Skeena Drive to approx. 110 m past the Wildwood intersection, and Wildwood Ave from Skeena Drive to Evergreen.

The District of Port Edward has a few markers in place for the work, which include no work on Sundays unless in case of an emergency or special circumstance and advance notice of any work to take place on Stat holidays.

The 2020 summer focus for the project will be to have the work to be performed between Skeena Drive and Sunset Drive along Wildwood fully completed no later than September 26th, 2020. 

Substantial completion for the entire project is to be in place no later than August 1st 2021
