Some misplaced infrastructure has delayed a Valleyview road construction project.
Capital Projects Manager Darren Crundwell says, the River Road reconstruction is now about 70 per cent complete, after a 3 week delay.
“We are behind a little bit, we unfortunately found a water main where it wasn’t supposed to be, so its taken a little bit longer.”
Crundwell says, these kind of problems aren’t unusual to run into in 30-40 year old neighbourhoods.
“Unfortunately the water main was not where it was supposed to be, so yeah, we’ve had a few delays on there. Just our utility information not being what it should be, which is common with reconstruction in older neighbourhoods like that.”
He adds, the city is glad to have the patience of people who live in the area during delays.
