The City awarded a contract to Milestone Contracting Inc for the Pym Street North and Forsyth Avenue renewal project and Koers & Associates Engineering Ltd will provide construction management services for the project. Work will begin this week with construction expected to be substantially complete by the end of September.

The project includes:

  • Pym Street portion will include replacement of about 250 metres of existing asbestos cement watermain and the rebuilding of 300 metres of roadway from Forsyth Avenue to Humphrey Road. New streetlight infrastructure will replace the existing BC Hydro streetlights leaded by the City.
  • Forsyth Avenue portion of the project includes replacement of about 170 metres of asbestos cement watermain and the installation of a formalized drainage system from Pym Street to Cameron Street.

As with major road construction, some inconveniences should be expected. We appreciate the cooperation and patience of the public during project construction. Traffic will be open to local residents and emergency vehicles; however, temporary road closures, including intermittent alternating single-lane usage and possible detours. During construction, traffic will be controlled in all directions for both vehicles and pedestrians.

Potable water disruptions may occur in order to perform necessary work in a safe and efficient manner. Should this occur, the contractor is required to notify local residents a minimum of 48 hours prior to undertaking the work.

For project information, contact the City’s engineering department engineering@parksville.ca or 250 951-2484. Construction drawings may be viewed here.
