With call for bids, City takes first steps towards start of 2021 paving program

A summer of road repair is about to launch as
the City of Prince Rupert puts its paving program
for 2021 out for bid

Some good news for the residents of the city as they bounce across far too many potholes and crumbling roads, the City of Prince Rupert is ramping up its planning for a 2021 paving program, issuing a call for bids from interested contractors on Monday.

As part of the call for tenders, the City has identified nineteen areas for attention as part of the 2021 program


The dots on the map above indicate which areas of the city will receive attention, though it won't be a paving of entire streets, with the project outline available from the BC bid documentation available online, providing for the details as to what will be tackled in each area.

The deadline for the submission of bids is 2 PM on May 17th, proposals are to be delivered to Jordan Schmidt, the City's Assistant Operations Manger. 

The paving project is expected to be completed on or before September 24th of this year

The paving program gets its debut following the passing of the Prince Rupert Budget and Tax Bylaws for 2021, with City Council noting of the doubling of the budget for roads in the community.
