Repaving Sixth Street to start at end of month

Drivers in Uptown New Westminster can expect some more delays this summer on Sixth Street, but the end result should be a smooth street instead of the bumpy ride drivers currently experience.

The city has announced repaving Sixth Street from Queens Avenue to Sixth Avenue is expected to start in late May and completed by late July, depending on weather.

During the construction single-lane alternating traffic will be maintained on Sixth with temporary closures of minor cross streets and lanes also happening during the work.

At times access to property driveways may be interrupted.

"The contractor will coordinate any anticipated interruptions with individual properties in advance to minimize any inconvenience," said the city.

On-street parking will also be temporarily removed in areas where the pavement is being reconstructed.

For more information call the city's engineering department at 604-527-4592.
