The City of Prince Rupert has begun work to rehabilitate sidewalks in the downtown core, part of a five year plan to beautify and encourage activity in the downtown core.

Rupert Wood’n Steel was awarded the contract to replace all Third Avenue sidewalks from McBride Street to 8th Street, a project that is part of the city’s Re:build Rupert initiative.

“‘We are pleased to initiate the revitalization of our downtown core. This is part of Council’s new ‘Re:Build Rupert’ initiative to address our aging infrastructure needs,” said Mayor Lee Brain, noting the sidewalk replacement is just the start of council’s plans for downtown.

“In the long term, we would like to begin a community engagement process to identify how 3rd Ave could look in the future with residents and small businesses alike.”

With equipment and fencing around the sidewalks being worked on, Rupert Wood’n Steel will be notifying business that may be impacted by the construction work and will work with businesses to minimize disturbances.
