Complete paver blocks cover about 70% of Bear Street
Crews will continue working on the Bear Street Reconstruction this weekend, applying polymeric sand on either Saturday or Sunday, depending on weather conditions.
Next week, construction includes road base preparation and grading near the intersections and parking lot. Crews will work on masonry on the streetlight bases and around the fire pit, cladding with the same rock type as the planter boulders. Other crews will continue landscaping, and a team will start installing benches and other street furniture. Paver stone installation continues in its four phases.
Road base work in the surface parking lot next week will involve removal of debris, compaction and testing of the sub-base, grading and shaping. This work will not affect access to any properties, but will create vibrations.
Paver block installation all next week will affect access to 225 Bear Street (includes Bactrax and Rocky Mountain Flannel Company).
Starting on Wednesday, paver block installation will affect the entrance to the Lux Theatre and then the Wolf & Bear Mall. Paver blocks installation will also affect entrances to the Townhouse Groceteria, Bear Street Mall, Gourlay’s Pharmacy, Townhouse Liquor and Townhouse Apartments.
Work on the sand base and block pavers near the Caribou Intersection will cause intermittent disruptions to the entrances at Canada House Gallery, the Olympic Building front entrance and Scallywags.
The Wolf Street and Caribou Street intersections will remain closed to vehicular traffic until the end of the project in July.
