FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Officials with the City of Fort St. John say that the main downtown intersection of 100th Street and 100th Avenue will be closed on Thursday for the start of a long-awaited resurfacing project.
Communications Coordinator Ryan Harvey said that the intersection will be closed to traffic in all directions as crews start milling the road surface to prepare it for the laying down of new pavement.
The intersection has been closed on numerous occasions since May when a water main failure caused the intersection to be closed for emergency repairs.
Harvey said that after crews finish milling the surface of the intersection, a new layer of asphalt will be laid down to resurface the roads several days later.
