Parksville to install new 4-way stop at Alberni Highway and Hirst Avenue

Crews will begin paving and installation at 4 a.m. on May 10

Parksville drivers can expect some minor delays while crews install a new four-way stop at the intersection of Alberni Highway and Hirst Avenue West.

Paving and installation will begin at 4 a.m. on May 10, according to a news release by the city. The work is part of the Memorial and Hirst Avenues Upgrades Project.

There will also be paving on the Alberni Highway at Memorial Avenue and on Hirst Avenue West from the Alberni Highway to McMillan Street South. To accommodate this work, single lane alternating traffic on the Alberni Highway and a temporary road closure on Hirst Avenue West at the Alberni Highway will be in effect between 4 a.m. to 5 p.m. The city asks drivers to avoid the area during that time.

The four-way stop is a recommendation of the City of Parksville’s 2016 Transportation Master Plan and replaces a two-way stop on Hirst Avenue West at the Alberni Highway. Currently, only right turns are allowed from eastbound Hirst Avenue West. The new four-way stop will allow all turning movements and safer pedestrian crossings.
