4th Avenue Reconstruction Project Set to Break Ground

Ladysmith, January 13, 2023 - The Town has retained Hazelwood Construction to complete the reconstruction of 4th Avenue between White Street and Root Street over the coming months.
Construction of this $2.3-million infrastructure project will start in mid-January 2023, with completion planned for early Fall 2023.
The contractor is replacing existing underground and surface infrastructure within the municipal right-of-way. This work includes replacement and upgrading of sanitary sewer, storm sewer, watermain, pavement, curb and gutter as well as streetlights.
Additionally as part of the project, a traffic circle is being built at 4th Avenue and Belaire Street to improve the flow of traffic at this intersection.
At times, Hazelwood may require the full or partial closure of the road. We encourage you to please follow the posted directional signage.
The work is being completed due to the age and condition of the existing infrastructure and change in traffic volumes over time.
Residents within the work zone should have received a hand-delivered letter with further details, including information specific to garbage, recycling and organics collection during construction.
We appreciate the patience of residents and motorists who may be impacted by detours or road closures during peak times of day when traffic volumes are higher.
Signs indicating “Local Traffic Only” refer to properties located in the construction work zone only. All other thru traffic will be detoured around the work area.

The Town gratefully acknowledges the $513,930 in funding distributed through the Federal Government’s Canada Community Building Fund.
A map and project page will be made available on the Town’s website early next week where you can receive further ongoing updates.

If you have questions about the project, please contact Infrastructure Services by calling 250-245-6445.
