Alert! Upcoming road work near hospital
More road work, related to the construction of the new Mills Memorial Hospital, is coming down the pipe.
Last month, upgrades were made to the storm and water system under Haugland Avenue west of the hospital’s main entrance towards Eby Street.
In addition, a secondary water main, under Tetrault Street needs to be installed. This should take about three days during which a section of Tetrault Avenue near Keith Avenue, will be closed.
Residents will still be able to access the businesses on the corner of Keith and Tetrault. However, drivers won’t be able to drive through Tetrault from Keith Avenue, or onto Keith Avenue.
The work on Tetrault work should begin Saturday, August 28, and will take approximately 3 days.
Similar to when upgrades were made under Haugland Avenue, a section of Tetrault, after the initial upgrades are made, will remain a gravel surface. That section will be paved after the contractor can do the final connection to the water main based on approved tie in procedures.
PCL is working closely with the City of Terrace and its permitting approval process while planning and completing this work. Plans are in place to mitigate neighbourhood and community impacts including managing dust and traffic disruptions.
