Campbell River’s Highway 19A upgrades project is now finished.

The project included the Big Rock Boat Ramp and waterfront sewer upgrades.

The federal government and province’s New Building Canada – Small Communities Fund provided $6.43 million for the City’s waterfront work.

Underground services from Simms Creek to Big Rock Boat Ramp were installed last year.

Overhead wires were moved underground along with the paving and landscaping work wrapping up this year.

“These completed upgrades provide significant improvements to a special part of our community and this spectacular waterfront corridor, which some people are now referring to as Campbell Riviera,” said Campbell River Mayor Andy Adams. “The popular seawalk is even better through this area now, with great options for pedestrians and cyclists. We thank everyone for their patience throughout this multi-year project. While this work brought many inconveniences to people’s day-to-day lives, the result is enhanced community space that can be enjoyed by residents and visitors for years to come.”

The project was finished within the budget and in the expected time frame.

“This hardworking and dedicated team has overcome many challenges along the way, not least of which was a global pandemic,” said deputy city manager Ron Neufeld. “It’s been remarkable to see everyone from contractors to staff and community members demonstrate enormous adaptability for us to get this done.”
