Tender expected in September for North Courtenay Connector

The proposed North Courtenay Connector road will be situated 3 kilometres north of the Courtenay City centre, near the Comox Valley Exhibition Grounds. The roadway will run west from Dove Creek Road at Headquarters Road to Piercy Road – where Piercy continues to Highway 19.
Site servicing underway for Tyee Plaza apartment building
Site servicing is underway at the Tyee Plaza in Campbell River for the 46-unit residential apartment building at 1299 Shoppers Row, slated to be under construction within the week. The building will have a footprint of 808m2 (8,702 ft2) and total area of 3161m2 (34,028 ft2). The remainder of the parcel will be developed as surface parking and landscaped area.
