Terminal Avenue Utility Upgrade Project to start April 10

Drivers advised of possible delays


The City of Nanaimo is advising drivers of upcoming construction on Terminal Avenue that may impact their commute. Starting Monday, April 10, crews will be working on Terminal Avenue from St. George Street to Stewart Avenue to upgrade utilities. As part of a larger utility upgrade project, work on Terminal Avenue is expected to be complete in July 2017.

During this time drivers can expect traffic patterns changes along the corridor as required to complete the work. Periods of night work are also expected in June and July. Drivers are asked to use caution and obey all signage and traffic control personnel.

For more information on this project please see the link provided in the online version of the news release.

Strategic Link: Upgrading City utilities supports the Asset Management priority.

Key Points

  • During construction, two way traffic will be maintained throughout the day while single lane alternating with delays and/or detours will take place at night.
  • All businesses are open throughout construction and access to them will be maintained.
  • The Terminal Avenue Utility Upgrades Project consists of five zones starting with Terminal Avenue from St. George Street to Stewart Avenue. The entire project is expected to be complete by November 2017.


"We want to thank residents and drivers for their patience as we complete this project and ask that drivers allow additional time to travel through Terminal Avenue or choose an alternate route."
