Another section of Bruce Avenue will be closed for road upgrades starting this week.
The closure of Bruce between Fifth and Sixth streets began Monday in conjunction with development at 601 Bruce Ave.
Work includes changing the road profile to improve sightlines, installing concrete curbs, working on the gutter and sidewalk, improving street lighting and adding new street markings.
A detour using Howard Avenue will be in place 24 hours a day, including weekends and holidays.
“We appreciate that there is a lot of work going on in the Bruce Avenue corridor at the moment and felt that providing a road closure would get this portion of Bruce completed faster,” said Michael Elliott, project manager with the City of Nanaimo’s engineering and public works department, in a press release.
