Upgrades along Beech Street in the downtown core will be completed this summer, an extension to upgrades that have been completed in earlier phases nearby.
With the design phase nearing completion, the City of Campbell River expects work to begin this summer to further improve services and infrastructure along Beech Street, between Alder Street and 10th Avenue.
“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,” says Mayor Andy Adams. “This renewal project provides for increased residential living downtown and improves the area for a range of users.”
Upgrades to this area will add traffic calming measures, improve pedestrian infrastructure and offer opportunity for active transportation modes. Work will include:
• Infrastructure updates: New water, sewer and storm mains and services
• New roadways: Roadway constructed to meet Urban Local Commercial Standards
• Pedestrian-friendly upgrades: Improved lighting, crosswalks and boulevards
• Aesthetics: Upgraded surface finishes matching the adjacent Downtown Revitalization Project (including new tree planting and landscaping)
