Prest Road Widening and Semiault Bridge Replacement
Phase 1: February-May 2020 & December 2020 - February 2021
Phase 2: June-October 2021
- BC Hydro pole relocation works are scheduled for December 2020 - February 2021
- Upgrade of Prest Road from Highway #1 to McGuire Road.
- The Prest Road project is part of a larger construction package that will include the widening of Vedder Road from Keith Wilson Road to Watson Road, and the widening Promontory Road from Vedder Elementary east to Chester Drive.
- Council has awarded these works in one package to Eurovia BC. Bundling multiple roadway projects together helps keep costs low while ensuring the works are coordinated in a way that minimizes the impact to the community.
- The improvements along Prest Road include road widening to provide sufficient travel lane width, bike lanes, shoulders, replacement of Semiault Creek Bridge, along with the relocation of BC Hydro poles.
- Why is this work delayed to next summer?
- Bridge replacement is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2021 to allow time for environmental approvals and to conduct in stream work during the regional fisheries timing window.
