Repaving along Nanaimo Lakes Road set to start this fall


Nanaimo Lakes Road, between Lincoln Road and Wakesiah Avenue, will be repaved this fall. Construction will begin September 28 and should be complete by the end of October. The road work will include the addition of paved shoulders for pedestrians and cyclists.

Strategic Link: 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 Transportation Master Plan by providing a higher level of service to alternative modes of transportation, such as pedestrians and cyclists.

Key Points

  • Motorists are advised that there will be significant traffic disruptions and are encouraged to choose an alternate route.
  • Construction is anticipated to be completed by the end of October, however this time line is dependent on suitable paving weather.


"This project completes the renewal of Nanaimo Lakes Road and supplies Nanaimo residents with a transportation corridor that provides all users with a higher level of service."
