A mechanical breakdown has delayed paving and the installation of a four-way stop at Alberni Highway and Hirst Avenue West in Parksville. The work was rescheduled to next week, weather permitting, according to a news release by the city.
Paving started as planned early Wednesday morning, with Hirst Avenue West from McMillan Street South to the Alberni Highway receiving its final layer. Road markings were also put in place on the newly-paved section of Hirst.
Crews will take advantage of good weather, including over weekends, to pour more concrete in the new Memorial Plaza and along Memorial Avenue sidewalks.
After one of the rainiest Aprils on city record, the project team has been working hard to install concrete. The concrete works include patterned concrete panels and concrete benches, which reflect the organic shapes of the 100-year-old memorial trees.
“Thank you for your continued patience with the project team and traffic control personnel as we work towards
spring completion,” the release reads.
