FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Crews have been hard at work on the 100th Street Corridor construction project, completing multiple activities since the last construction update.

According to a City of Fort St. John release on Friday, the following jobs have been completed since the last update on June 3rd:

The next tasks to be completed are installation of screw piles for traffic signals, continued installation of water main tie-ins on 98th and 97th Avenues, and Silva Cell installation between 96th and 97th Avenue’s west portion.

Silva Cells are a raised pavement system that supports large tree growth and provides effective stormwater management.

Businesses along the corridor will remain open and accessible, says the release.

When completed, there will be wider sidewalks to accommodate pedestrians and winter snow management, boulevard trees with an automated irrigation system, new benches and furnishings, decorative lighting for visibility and safety, left-turn lanes, and dedicated spaces for road snow storage.
