Revelstoke B.C. — The City of Revelstoke is pleased to announce the roundabout construction at the intersection of Townley Street, Fourth Street E, and Victoria Road is scheduled to commence in the Spring of 2020.
As the City’s top, non-highway, collision intersection, the Townley/Fourth/Victoria roundabout project aims to address safety issues, reduce crash frequency and severity, and improve traffic flow for all modes of transportation.
In conjunction with the roundabout project, much needed replacement of the aging sewer and water infrastructure in the area will also take place. Replacing these utilities while road construction takes place is a cost-effective method for managing the City’s infrastructure.
This project along with the aging infrastructure project was approved for $5,078,300 of Federal Gas Tax – Strategic Priorities Fund grant funding by the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM) which supports infrastructure and capacity building projects.
Mayor Gary Sulz, in commenting on the project stated, “I am pleased to see the hard work in planning and obtaining UBCM grant funds for the construction of this roundabout come to fruition. I especially want to thank Canadian Pacific for their efforts in helping this project move forward in a timely manner.”
Director of Engineering and Public Works, Steve Black stated: “I am very excited to see this project get off the ground, it will be an excellent addition to the community as the safety of our residents and visitors is of utmost importance.”
The Negotiated Request for Proposal (NRFP) is posted on Bonfire.
