Crews re­plac­ing dam­aged Vic­to­ria Street cul­vert

The Prince George Citizen - - Local - Cit­i­zen staff

A sec­tion of Vic­to­ria Street is ex­pected to be re­opened by the end of the week as work­ers make progress on re­pair­ing a cul­vert, ac­cord­ing to city hall.

They are re­plac­ing a five-me­tre sec­tion of storm drain be­tween McCul­lagh and Mil­burn Av­enues.

Once that’s done, they will back­fill and repave the site.

The stretch has been closed since late last week as the city worked to de­ter­mine the best way to fix the dam­aged cul­vert, now be­lieved to have been in­stalled in the late 1960s.

“The op­er­a­tion was slowed for a few days as rain and ground water filled the ex­ca­va­tion site and had to be re­moved,” city hall said.
