Corfield Street work continues in Parksville

Delays, alternating traffic can be expected

Alternating single-lane traffic and interruptions to traffic flow can be expected through Friday on Corfield Street between Stanford Avenue and Jensen Avenue, the City of Parksville announced Monday, Jan. 15.

Ongoing construction by Locar Industries will focus on the storm and sanitary sewer service connections, with crews working primarily from Stanford Avenue north toward Jensen Avenue.

As well, crews will be working on the Jensen trail alignment between Bagshaw and McVickers. and the pedestrian connection on the south side of Jensen is closed. The city asks that pedestrians use the crosswalk on the north side of Jensen to access the existing trail.

During construction, traffic will be controlled in all directions for both cars and pedestrians. In order for this work to be completed, expect interruptions to traffic flow and intermittent alternating single-lane usage.

“We ask for the patience of the public; the contractor will attempt to complete this work as efficiently and safely as possible,” city communications director Deb Tardiff said in the release. “For the public’s safety, the instructions provided by the traffic control people must be obeyed.”

The final construction drawings are now available to view on the city’s website. To view, visit and select “Corfield Street Project” from the Quicklinks menu on the upper-right area of the home page. When necessary, project updates will be posted on the website, as well as ongoing social media posts at #ParksvilleCorfieldUpgrades.

Should people have questions about the project, please contact the project manager, Fred Pakkala, at 250-951-2479.
