Craig Street getting upgrades in Parksville

This work is expected to begin on Oct. 13 and is weather dependent

  • Oct. 8, 2015 1:00 p.m.

Work will start next week for pedestrian upgrades and road resurfacing along Craig Street, according to a City of Parksville news release.

The release advises residents, business owners and those using Craig Street of the city’s planned pedestrian upgrades and road resurfacing between the Hirst Avenue and Middleton Avenue intersections.

This work is expected to begin on Oct. 13 and is weather dependent. It will include the removal of all existing exposed aggregate concrete wheelchair and driveway ramps, re-installation of city standard wheelchair and driveway ramps, the installation of a new crosswalk and wheelchair ramp at the corner of Middleton Avenue and Craig Street.

The pedestrian upgrades will significantly improve the delineation between the level sidewalk and wheelchair and driveway ramps for the vision impaired as well as improve access safety for the mobility challenged.

The upgrades should be substantially complete within seven days.

According to the city’s release, “While all attempts will be made to meet this schedule, circumstances not within our control such as poor weather may arise which could delay completion. Work crews will do their best to maintain safe access to all properties, however; some minor delays should be expected. During asphalt paving you will be requested to relocate your vehicle off street, vehicle access will be restored at the end of the working day or once paving is completed.”

Questions or concerns should be directed to the city’s operations department.
