I love reading these stories. There’s something about new pavement and making this city look better that makes me happy. Keep going City of PG there’s still lots of streets to pave.

By the way Bellamy Rd in really in poor shape. Please keep it in mind for next year’s list of paving jobs.

What a joke these roads have great pavement compared to Marleau and Bear. Heavy traffic on crumbling potholes pavement. These two roads service three subdivisions, a major shopping center and major access to and off hwy 16. No sidewalks, hey not even a bike lane.

It is narrow at spots and getting narrower with erosion and crumbling pavement.

Marleau and Bear are dangerous to drive, walk and bike. With the heavy traffic volumes I cannot believe the absolute irresponsibility and neglect of the city. Maybe ICBC should take notice.

resurfacing 8th between the bypass and the crescents next summer would be appreciated too, there are a number of intersections in poor condition. I bike to work, and as that is the instructed route to take into the downtown area, it would be nice if the pavement is in a condition that is suitable for the purpose.

Take Todd stone for a drive up Foothills and maybe he can increase the speed limit.. f he doesn’t agree, just drop him off at the Foothill landfill … he can use foot power back to town and enjoy seeing the dump from the road
