FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Paving has started on 100th Street, signalling that the second phase is almost complete.

Crews began paving on Thursday and will continue over the next several days, according to the City of Fort St. John. Paving is completed in two separate phases or lifts.

Over the next month, crews will be installing traffic lights, installing electrical ducting and irrigation systems, and sidewalk preparation and concrete placement.

Phase 2 work is expected to be completed in the fall, with Phase 3 set to take place next summer.

The $7.63 million phase started in May and is primarily funded through the Peace River Agreement, with additional funds coming from water and sewer reserves.
