Drivers are advised that Nanaimo Lakes Road will see repaving work between Sept. 28 and sometime in late-October

Paving scheduled for Nanaimo Lakes Road this fall

NANAIMO – Paving from Lincoln road to Wakesiah Avenue will begin Wednesday (Sept. 28) and expected to wrap up by the end of October.

Nanaimo Lakes Road, between Lincoln Road and Wakesiah Avenue, will be repaved this fall.

The road work will include the addition of paved shoulders for pedestrians and cyclists.

Nanaimo Lakes Road has reached the end of its functional life and is being renewed as part of the City’s Asset Management Plan.

Adding paved shoulders to this section of road supports the city’s Transportation Master Plan by providing a higher level of service to alternative modes of transportation, such as pedestrians and cyclists.

Construction will begin Wednesday (Sept. 28) and should be complete by the end of October, however this timeline is dependent on suitable paving weather.

Motorists are advised that there will be significant traffic disruptions and are encouraged to choose an alternate route.
