Bike lane project completion delayed until 2017

Rain halts final paving and line painting for Dunford Avenue project

Due to the significant amount of rainfall this fall, Langford staff have delayed the completion of the Dunford Avenue bike lane project.

Staff announced last week that the project has been postponed until February or March of next year, when road surfaces are drier and temperatures are warmer to allow for the final paving to take place.

The City undertook the project after receiving a Bike B.C. grant for the construction of bike lanes on Dunford between Jacklin and Leigh roads. Work on the project began in September with improvements to local drainage. The existing asphalt and concrete were removed and recycled and the roadway was graded to accommodate the new bike lanes.

The project was originally expected to be completed in late October, however, paving and line painting are weather dependent and crews were unable to find accommodating weather to fully complete the project.

City staff ask the public to watch cityoflangford.ca in the new year for updates on the project.
