    Highway 19A upgrades schedule revised to reduce the spread of COVID-19

    Moving the powerlines along Highway 19A underground – between Rockland Road and the Big Rock Boat Ramp – will be postponed to 2021. This change to the original schedule is caused by efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19 this spring/summer.

    While the majority of roadworks in the area will be completed this year by the City of Campbell River’s contractor as expected, the amended schedule is a result of COVID-19’s impacts on crews and scheduling for BC Hydro, who are required for the underground powerline work. 

    “We know the community is eager to see this work completed, and to see the benefits of the many upgrades included as a part of this intensive project,” said Mayor Andy Adams. “We look forward to continuing work with our partners, and Campbell River residents, to see this project complete as soon as possible.”  Read more...
