Road sub-excavation and the installation of storm water systems continued this week on the South Lakeside Drive upgrading project in Williams Lake.
Sub-excavation is the removal and replacement of the road base material explains the Friday, Sept. 23 press release from the city.
Next week’s work schedule includes paving from Hodgson Road to the Hub City auction on Sunday, Aug. 25 (weather permitting), as well as further road sub-excavation east of Hub City Auctions. Installation of the drainage system in the south ditch will be completed.
The public is reminded that the portion of South Lakeside Drive between the Cariboo Adventist Academy and Hodgson Road is a construction area, and rough patches of road are to be expected.
The contractor is regularly working on grading and repairing rough areas, but patience is requested because the high volume of traffic causes road condition to deteriorate quickly.
Motorists are also reminded to obey the posted 30 km/h speed limit. Traffic flow will be single-lane alternating.
South Lakeside Drive will be repaved from Hodgson Road to the Cariboo Adventist Academy.
The merge lane from Hodgson Road will be extended to Pioneer Drive, and a pedestrian/bike lane will be added from Hodgson Road to the Cariboo Adventist Academy.
Work on the project is expected to continue through September.
