Detour on lower Argyle due to roadwork

The west bound lanes at the bottom of Argyle Street will be closed until late October to make way for infrastructure improvements.

The west bound lanes at the bottom of Argyle Street will be closed until late October to make way for infrastructure improvements, according to city of Port Alberni streets superintendent Wilf Taekema.

“A detour of Argyle Street is required for the Kingsway/ Argyle storm outfall project,” said Taekema. “The city of Port Alberni is installing new storm drain pipes, upgrading water mains, and constructing sidewalk/street improvements and needs to close the north side of Argyle Street (westbound lanes) from September 29 to late October, between First Avenue and Kingsway Avenue.”

Taekema said that “traffic access will still be available to lower Argyle Street including Harbour Quay via a detour south along First Avenue to Angus Street, west along Angus Street, and then north along Kingsway Avenue back to Argyle Street.”

As a reminder, Kingsway Avenue also currently closed between Argyle Street and Third Avenue due to road work and Third Avenue is closed between Napier Street and Dunbar Street from Sept. 29-Oct. 1 because of Dry Creek flood mitigation work. If possible, use 10th Avenue as your north-south connection until Third Avenue is reopened after Oct. 1.

“The city appreciates the public’s understanding of the inconvenience from this infrastructure improvement,” Taekema said.

For more information contact the public works yard at 250-720-2840 or city hall at 250-723-2146.
