CORRECTION: The article previously stated that 100th Street would be open this Friday, which Communications Manager Ryan Harvey says is not the case. He says the street will be open to traffic soon, but a date hasn’t been set.

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Phase 2 of the 100th Street corridor project is almost complete.

Communications Manager Ryan Harvey says 100th Street will be open soon, but the date hasn’t been set.

The contractor is working on getting the finishing touches done that were previously delayed. The tree grates and final electrical work are being completed this week.

The summer months were spent replacing the entire infrastructure, including sewer, water, and electrical.

The contractor spent August building the road with a new 30-year design. Last month, September revolved around paving, concrete, and planting.

According to a post by City of Fort St. John Councillor Trevor Bolin, the project should be completed within the timeframe it was initially planned for, which was Fall 2021.

Phase 2 of the project began at the end of May, with the next phase scheduled to start in 2022.

More information about the 100th Street Corridor Project can be found on the City of Fort St. John’s website.
