Construction on Yale Street in Hope about to begin

The ambitious revamp is costing the District of Hope $2 million

Construction signs are up and work is about to start on an upgrade to the Yale Street corridor.

The District of Hope says work will be happening between Stuart Street and 7th Avenue, between June and November of 2022.

The District said the project is designed to a ‘collector road standard.’ Collector road usually denotes a low-to-moderate-capacity road moving traffic from side streets to arterial roads.

The Yale Street project “prioritizes active transportation” with the use of a three-metre multi-use pathway, curb extensions to promote traffic calming, and a parking lane on the west side of the road.

According to reports from the district, the improvements will also include full depth reclamation of existing road structure, additional road structure to widen the corridor to include 3.5m lanes, a 2.4m parking lane, curb and gutter, 2m raised concrete sidewalk and boulevard and driveway restoration.

It will also include intersection improvements, curb extension installation at intersections, stormwater management improvements, water system replacement and sanitary system replacement.

Jakes Construction Ltd. will handle the work.

The District has promised to set up a project information page soon at hope.ca.
