Town of Qualicum Beach looking for proposals for Memorial Avenue phase 3

Deadline for submission is July 24

The Town of Qualicum Beach is seeking proposals for phase 3 of the Memorial Avenue upgrades. The submission deadline is July 24 at 2 p.m.

In April, the town received about $1.4 million from the federal and provincial governments through the Clean Water and Wastewater Fund.

The town is inviting consulting engineering firms to submit proposals for the project, which will include Beach Creek enhancement, the Highway 19A roundabout and a bike path completion. The third phase of the Memorial Avenue upgrades is the last phase of the project that started in the summer of 2016. The project includes several components, including greenshore and beach restoration, wastewater infrastructure replacement, a roundabout at Memorial Avenue and Highway 19A, active transportation upgrades and beautification in line with the town’s Waterfront Master Plan.
