FORT ST. JOHN, B.C – City council awarded the second phase of the 96th Street Roadworks project to Champan Industries for over $1.3 million on Monday.
The Vernon-based company will be upgrading 96th Street from 114th Avenue to 117th Avenue. The work includes installing storm sewers, streetlights, trail and sidewalk, and water and sanitary sewer upgrades.
“This phase of the 96th Street Roadworks project includes the relocation and reconstruction/paving of 96th Street adjacent to Bert Ambrose School,” says the May 10th report to council.
Upgrades will provide additional sewer capacity to the neighbourhood to prevent the chance of backups, the report says.
The city received five submissions in response to the tender, including Champman Industries out of Vernon ($1,332,722.46), Terus Construction out of FSJ ($1,342,786.32), Knelson out of La Crete ($1,360,360.59), Knappett Industries out of FSJ ($1,385,931.75), and S. Young Enterprises out of FSJ ($1,504,026.28).
The project is under the $1.5 million budget with a surplus of just under $62,000.
