QC’s Bay Street road realignment

  • Feb. 15, 2014 7:00 a.m.

Submitted by the village–The Village of Queen Charlotte and the Ministry of Transportation will soon conclude work to realign Bay Street near the community hall, resolving some long standing rights-of-way concerns, and completing the final commitment for transfer of the village roads as part of incorporation. The project entails detailed design, negotiations with a number of property owners along the street, hazardous material assessment and removal, an archeological assessment and archaeological monitoring during demolition and construction. Once the ministry completes building demolition and realignment work on the road, the village will designate Bay Street one-way eastbound. This new designation will result in improving the movement of traffic along this street and will better accommodate emergency vehicles. The project is funded by the ministry at an estimated $250,000 to $300,000. Design, legal surveys, property acquisition, hazardous material assessment and removal and preliminary site preparation work for the project have been completed. Demolition and realignment work will begin in mid-February. Paving work will take place this summer. “The road encroachments on Bay Street have been a long standing issue for the private property owners in the area. The village is pleased that the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has been able to work with the land owners to realize a solution and appreciate the ministry’s considerable financial support,” said QC mayor Carol Kulesha.
