About Colwood's road resurfacing program

The City determines which streets are due to be resurfaced each year based on pavement conditions, pavement age and traffic volumes as well as other factors such as transit and bicycle routes, utility clearances and available budget.

  • During road resurfacing, traffic delays can be expected, but single lane alternating traffic will be maintained at all times.
  • Sign boards will be posted on major roads to advise commuters in advance of the expected dates for the work.
  • Residents and businesses fronting the paving locations will receive written project notices.
  • Paving is weather sensitive so schedules may change.
