Upgrades will be completed this summer to downtown’s Beech Street for accessibility and active transportation.
The City of Campbell River announced that work will be done between Alder Street and 10th Avenue.
The upgrades will include infrastructure changes, like new water, sewer and storm mains, new roadways to meet commercial standards, pedestrian-friendly improvements like lighting and crosswalks, and aesthetic changes to match adjacent downtown revitalization projects.
Traffic calming measures will also be added to make the area safer for pedestrians. Mayor Andy Adams says the projects will make the downtown better.
“By expanding our revitalization work throughout downtown, we further our goals of a more vibrant and accessible city centre that encourages use by our residents as well as visitors,” said Adams. “This renewal project provides for increased residential living downtown and improves the area for a range of users.”
The work is expected to begin in early summer.
