Craig Creek Culvert Replacements Project drawings
(Detail Design)
Expected completion summer 2019
The Craig Creek culverts located on Northwest Bay Road just west of Terrien Road at City’s boundary was identified for upgrade in 2017. Craig Creek, a salmon and trout stream, passes through the culverts under Northwest Bay Road. The culverts have presented problems of failing headwalls, elevated inlet and outlets restricting the movement of fish and capacity concerns during peak winter stream flows. The twin culverts installed by the Ministry of Transportation will be replaced to meet current hydro-technical guidelines. This project falls under the scope of the Fisheries Act as well as the Species at Risk Act.


McKinnon Street Upgrade Project drawings
(Detail Design)
Expected completion summer 2019
McKinnon Street upgrade from Harnish Avenue to Hirst Avenue, about 400 metres will be upgraded to the City’s urban local road standard. This standard is defined as two 4.25 metre wide travel lanes for on-street parking and shared bicycle use, with mountable curbs and a sidewalk on one side. New LED streetlights will also be installed. A new watermain and sanitary sewer main will be installed, which includes new service connection piping to the property line. The existing storm drainage system will be assessed and upgraded as applicable, along with catch basins and new service connection piping. Both the sanitary sewer and storm drainage systems will have inspection chambers installed at the property line for more efficient future maintenance access and operations. Completion of this project will significantly improve the safety for all vehicular traffic and pedestrians and should promote more walking along this corridor.


Moss Avenue Upgrade Project drawings
(Detail Design)
Expected completion summer 2019
Moss Avenue upgrade from Highway 4A to Craig Street, a distance of about 405 metres, will be upgraded to the City’s urban local road standard. This standard is defined as two 4.25 metre wide travel lanes, for on-street parking and shared bicycle use, complete with mountable curbs and a sidewalk on one side. New LED streetlights will also be installed. A new watermain and sanitary sewer main will be installed along with new service connection piping to the property line. The existing storm drainage system will be assessed and upgraded as necessary, with catch basins and new service connection piping. Both the sanitary sewer and storm drainage systems will have inspection chambers installed at the property line for more efficient future maintenance access and operations. Completion of this project will significantly improve the safety for all vehicular traffic and pedestrians and should promote more walking along this corridor.


Pym Street/ Forsyth Avenue Upgrades
(Detail Design)
Expected completion TBD
Pym Street upgrade from Forsyth Avenue to Humphrey Road includes upgrade of about 250 metres of existing asbestos cement watermain, rebuild of 300 metres of road structure, repaving, reinstating paint lines and installation of streetlights.


Forsyth Avenue upgrades will include about 170 metres of asbestos cement watermain and installation of a formalized drainage system from the Pym Street intersection to Cameron Street. This project is identified in the twenty- year capital plan and is scheduled for design in 2020 and construction in 2021. There is value in completing the design of works and services for Forsyth Avenue at this time as it interfaces directly with the Pym Street upgrade works. Additionally, a capacity analysis of the storm water network on Pym Street, Blenkin Avenue and Camas Way to determine if system upgrades identified within the 2016 storm drainage master plan are required.


The potential storm system upgrades:

  • Install about 250 metres of additional 375mm storm main on Pym Street.
  • Upgrade about 180 metres of storm drainage works from Pym Street to Cameron Street on Blenkin Avenue.
  • Upgrade about 80 metres of storm drainage works from Pym Street, 80 metres west to improve capacity issues on Camas Way.
In the 2016 storm drainage master plan, the storm network under these streets was found to be flowing at full capacity or in some cases overcapacity at OCP buildout projections. Field investigations and capacity modelling are required to confirm whether these mains require upgrading.


Shelly Road and Highway 19A Intersection Upgrade Project drawings
(Construction)
Completion expected 2018
The intersection of Shelly Road and Island Highway 19A was identified for future signalization in the City’s Transportation Master Plan. The upgrade is scheduled in the capital plan in 2018 and in general, will include:
  • Installation of traffic signals on Highway 19A and Shelly Road
  • Streetlight upgrading at the intersection
  • Crosswalk letdown modifications at all four corners of the intersection
  • Concrete curb, gutter and sidewalk removal and replacement
  • Line painting eradication and reinstatement on Highway 19A and Shelly Road


Wallis Street Upgrade Project drawings
(Detail Design)
Expected completion summer 2019
Wallis Street upgrade from the south end of Morison Avenue, about 110 metres will be upgraded to a modified urban local road standard due to a narrow non-standard right-of-way width. New LED streetlights will also be installed. A new watermain and sanitary sewer main will be installed, along with new service connection piping to the property line. The existing storm drainage system will be assessed and upgraded as applicable, complete with catch basins and new service connection piping. Both the sanitary sewer and storm drainage systems will have inspection chambers installed at the property line for more efficient future maintenance access and operations. Completion of this project will significantly improve the safety for vehicular traffic and pedestrians.
