Work on the third phase of the 100 Street Corridor project will begin Sunday, April 10, 2022, and will lead to the closure of 100 Street between 99 Avenue and 101 Avenue.
The underground infrastructure on 100 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 about how to improve the above-ground public spaces. 100 Street will continue to operate as a major transportation corridor within the city – functional for people and cars – and, at the same time, it will become more attractive and enjoyable to support a strong and vibrant downtown.
Earlier this year, Council awarded this phase of the project to Knappett Industries of Fort St. John in the amount of $9.22 million, who have also completed the previous two phases. The project is funded through non-property tax revenues, such as the Peace River Agreement and water and sewer reserves.
During construction, all businesses will remain open; however, their access may be modified slightly. A detour route will be in place using 98 and 102 streets between 99 and 101 avenues. As always, obey all traffic control people and signage, and slow down near crews working.
