FORT ST. JOHN, B.C – The city is closing off 100th Street between 96th Avenue and 99th Avenue to begin the second phase of the 100th Street Corridor project.
The second of four planned project phases begins Thursday with a detour route using 98th and 102nd streets between 96th and 99th avenues.
The city says work includes “upgrading the below and above-ground upgrades on 100 Street between 96 Avenue and 99 Avenue”.
Businesses will remain open during construction; however, the shops may have modified accesses.
Council awarded this phase of the project to Knappett Industries of Fort St. John for $7.63 million on April 12th. The project is funded through non-property tax revenues, such as the Peace River Agreement and water and sewer reserves.
“The underground infrastructure on 100th Street is ageing and needs to be upgraded, and with the necessary construction required, the City conducted a significant public engagement process in 2019 to hear from the community how to improve the above-ground public spaces,” says the city in a statement Monday.
The city hasn’t set a specific date but expects construction to be complete in the Fall.
