You'll be seeing more city crews out and about this month working on improvements to infrastructure. 

The City of Prince George is notifying drivers and pedestrians of paving projects taking place with the work expected to be done by the end of next week. 

The project includes 8.5 lane-kilometres of road in five different paving projects.

Roughly a kilometre of the sidewalk of Patricia Boulevard will be repaved, which makes it the longest sidewalk rehabilitation project of the year.

Projects starting this week, and hoping to be finished next week, are: 

  • Gillett Street from Fifth Avenue to 12th Avenue
  • Irwin Street from Fifth Avenue to Harper Street

Roughly two-lane kilometres of Ospika Boulevard is currently being repaved between 15th and 22nd Avenues; asphalt milling was finished earlier this week with paving scheduled to start next week. 

The city says, to help minimize traffic interruptions, paving will start at 4 a.m. each day. 

Residents are advised to follow road signs and to drive carefully around road crews.

Earlier this week, paving was finished on Alward Street between 10th and 15th Avenues and on Freeman Street from Eighth Avenue to 15th Avenue.
