Sidewalk Renewal Continues on 3rd Avenue

July 25, 2017

Constructions crews again are hard at work replacing sidewalks along 3rd Avenue. Crews have contacted local businesses to ensure that notice was provided ahead of disruptions, and that commercial and retail entranceways remain accessible to the public. In the interests of public safety and the efficient execution of the work, please obey all posted signage and fencing. Construction will be ongoing until September of 2017.


This project is part of a $1 million investment announced in 2015 towards a five year program to renew 3rd Avenue sidewalks, made possible through a dividend paid by Prince Rupert Legacy Inc. The project was included in the Council-approved 2017 Capital Works Budget and work schedule, and will see the area from 3rd Avenue to Fulton Street, and Besner Block going East replaced.  Thank you in advance for your patience during construction.
