City Launches Paving App
Price George, B.C.- Paving projects have resumed in Prince George, and to keep residents up to date on what’s being paved when, the City has developed an app.
The app, which can be accessed here, shows a map of the City and areas where work is either underway (0range), completed ( green) or planned for this paving season (pink).
