Each year the City of Nanaimo (City) undertakes capital improvement projects driven by growth, development, asset management, and other priority-based frameworks. As part of the City’s strategic planning process the 5-year Capital Plan identifies these projects and where possible combines those of similar scope and proximity to achieve economy of scale and a comprehensive product. There are several infrastructure improvements scheduled for construction within the Bowen Road corridor in 2020. As a result, these projects have been combined to create a comprehensive project that helps achieve the City’s goals.
Upgrades that Bowen Road (between Hwy 19A and Labieux Road) include, but are not limited to:
Bowen Road aims to increase the safety and comfort for people who walk, bike, take transit, and drive while ensuring that utility upgrades within the project area are completed with the proposed surface improvements.
These safety improvements incorporated into the project are directly from the Provincial Government’s BC Community Road Safety Toolkit, created in the hopes of working towards Vision Zero in communities throughout the province.
If you have any comments or questions on the proposed improvements, please contact us at 250-756-5343 or email Bowen.Road@nanaimo.ca
